A retiarius was a Roman gladiator who fought with equipment styled on that of a fisherman: a weighted net, a three-pointed trident, and a dagger (pugio). The retiarius was lightly armoured, wearing an arm guard and a shoulder guard. Typically, his clothing consisted only of a loincloth held in place by a wide belt, or of a short tunic with light padding. He wore no head protection or footwear.
The net was used to catch the opponent, make him trip or whip him.
This net is made of 4 mm jute yarn. The mesh size is approx. 45mm x 45mm.
The entire net is approx. 1.3 m squared.
Weight: approx. 1.4 kg
