Kourion and two gladiators

Kourion is a city on the south side of Cyprus. The ruins are impressive and they have some very fine mosaics, this being one of them. Here you see one, from the late second century AD (House of the Gladiators), depicting two gladiators during a fight: Μαργαρειτης vs Ελλενικος (Margareites vs Hellenikos.
