Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus Batiatus was a Roman lanista, a trainer and trader of gladiators. He was head of his family's ludus in Capua, and the dominus of Spartacus and the other gladiators who eventually rebelled against him and led the uprising known as the Third Servile War.

HistoryEdit

Batiatus took over the ludus from his father, and carried on his father and grandfathers profession as a lanista, training gladiators. He commanded the ludus for a number of years, and in 74 BC, he purchased a Thracian, who would come to be known as Spartacus. In 73 BC, his gladiators rebelled, escaping the ludus and leaving the ludus barren with dead Roman guards and slaves remaining. It is unknown what happened to Batiatus. He was either killed by his slaves or escaped, going to Rome to announce the rebellion.

PersonalityEdit

Batiatus was consumed with the pursuit of money, and was a well experienced lanista, though with a sub-concious fear of his own gladiators. He enjoyed flaunting his fortunes and victories in the faces of fellow lanista. As a lanista, he rewarded his gladiators for their triumphs, with money and wealth.

He was abusive to his slaves, and sometimes even his gladiators for personal satisfaction. He also, like other Romans believed in honor.
