Why do you care so much about it? If you're going to critique pretty everything in this comic which was NOT INTENDED to be historically accurate (only basic things, but it's a FICTIONAL comic), I don't think you need to know if the gladiator is younger or older
Because messing about with History when something actually historical in nature would serve the same purpose makes very little sense to me.
And because when a man came of age in Rome, he would not have sex with/or allow himself to be penetrated by a masculine male. Ephebophilia; attraction to adolescents from roughly 13-19 years of age; would have been the norm, NOT homosexuality. [Two mature men.] Also, oral sex was looked down on as humiliating and degrading, so there's that as well.
I care because the fetishization of Rome as a whole has led to some rather horrendous misinformation being spread recently. [Gladiator, Spartacus after season 1, and The Centurion being among the worst offenders.]
si no existe se crea que con el morbo que tiene esa época la gente no se resiste xD y con eso que estoy dando historia del arte se apañar una buena ciudad romana por algo borde la pregunta de urbanística romana xD
Like Nightcurse said, he's absolutely gorgeous. And what makes this even better is the fact that he looks A LOT like my husband ! Well, minus the outfit of course. XD I'd sure love to see him in an outfit like this ... *gone off fantasizing* I hope we'll be seeing plenty more of him
He's very handsome alright, with his ever so lovely smile, his blue eyes, long blond wavy manes and sexy muscular body. There's a pic of him on my Y!Gal profile [link] Gotta find an outfit like that first before I can force him to cosplay. XD But I sure would force him if I got one, that's for sure ! Well, YOU'd be the happiest girl. I'd be the happiest guy in the world, hahah ;D
