Seuthes was a Gladiator from Thrace who escaped from the ludus of Lentulus Batiatus along with Spartacus and the other gladiators and slaves. He remained and fought in the slave rebellion against the Roman Republic, becoming one of the rebel trainers.

Having fought in and survived most of the rebellion, he ultimately died during the Battle at the Silarus River in 71 BC.


Early Life

Seuthes was born somewhere in western Thrace and taken into slavery when he was captured by Roman scouts commanded by Marcus Aurelius Cotta. Taken to Capua, he was sold to Lentulus Batiatus, a successful lanista, and trained as a gladiator. He befriended many of the gladiators in his ludus, including Spartacus and Crixus.

When Spartacus began the revolt, Seuthes was quick to side with him.
