But then, when he grew short on supplies, he managed to get a third of his army over the earthen walls. Crassus had previously written to Rome to ask for support from general Pompey in Hispania and Lucullus in Thrace, but now he was set on defeating the slaves on his own.
And so he descended upon groups of rebels that had splintered from Spartacus, killing 12, of them. When the slaves turned on the Romans with great success, they were filled with over-confidence.
Spartacus and his troops were fending off the Roman army as best they could, but it was all for naught. They were cornered and swiftly defeated.
The rebellion, and the arduous attempt to travel back home, had come to an end. Spartacus was presumably killed — though his body was never found.
Then he made straight for Crassus himself, charging forward through the press of weapons and wounded men, and, though he did not reach Crassus, he cut down two centurions who fell on him together.
Finally, after his companions had taken to flight, he stood alone, surrounded by his foes, and was still defending himself when he was cut down.
More than 6, rebels captured after the defeat were crucified. In a common practice to deter citizens from rebellion, their crucified bodies were positioned along the Appian Way, stretching from Capua to Rome.
And though Crassus obliterated Spartacus and his followers, his glory was overshadowed by Pompey, who had returned from Spain in time to defeat 5, rebels.
While both of them were elected as consuls in 70 B. Bricks Ball Legend. Photo Eraser - Objects Remover. Ultimate Double Exposure.

See the list. The inspiration behind this series is the Thracian Gladiator Spartacus, who led a slave uprising against the Roman Republic. The Thracians had been persuaded by Claudius Glaber to serve as auxiliaries in the Roman legions in a campaign against the Getae, who had often plundered Thracian lands.
However after Glaber reneges on the deal and switches his attentions from the Getae to attack Mithridates in Asia Minor, the Thracians feel betrayed and mutiny.
Captured by Glaber, Spartacus is condemned to death as a Gladiator, whilst his wife Sura is condemned to slavery.
Spartacus, however, proves to be a formidable gladiator, and defeats the four gladiators tasked with executing him.
He becomes a favorite of the crowd, leading Senator Albinius to commute his death sentence to a life of slavery.
Spartacus is purchased by Batiatus for gladiator training, who promises to help him find Sura if he proves himself in training.

It's so good I'm watching it all over again. Amid all the glorious violence I had forgotten just how surprisingly emotional this series was.
If you have not seen it, watch it! You need not have seen the original film Spartacus to enjoy the series as they are not related.
Warning - every episode contains nudity and explicit sex scenes. You have been warned. And don't forget to watch the 6 episodes of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, which aired between seasons one and two, but could be watched after this series.
This was basically a holdover for the fans while it was hoped for and assumed by everyone involved that Andy Whitfield's return would be eminent.
Instead, he was considered part of the dregs of society. Born in roughly B. But we do know that he was sent to a gladiator school in Capua where he was trained to fight others with various weapons, as entertainment for massive crowds in arenas.
Discipline in these schools was harsh. Fundamentally though, gladiators were slaves, and generally they were considered the lowest of the low, the most worthless and useless of slaves," says Aaron Irvin, a history professor at Murray State University in Kentucky.
Irvin is a well-regarded historian who's also consulted on many TV series, including "Spartacus" , "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" , and "Roman Empire" Not all gladiator fights were to the death, notes Irvin.
Some ended when a fighter drew first blood or drove his opponent into submission. But in an age where basic hygiene like handwashing was rare and antibiotics didn't exist, even superficial wounds could prove fatal for one or both fighters.
And many fights only ended when one gladiator had killed another. Though few in number, they seized kitchen utensils, fought their way free from the school, and seized several wagons of gladiatorial weapons and armour.
Once free, the escaped gladiators chose Spartacus and two Gallic slaves— Crixus and Oenomaus —as their leaders. Although Roman authors assumed that the escaped slaves were a homogeneous group with Spartacus as their leader, they may have projected their own hierarchical view of military leadership onto the spontaneous organization, reducing other slave leaders to subordinate positions in their accounts.
The response of the Romans was hampered by the absence of the Roman legions, which were already engaged in fighting a revolt in Spain and the Third Mithridatic War.
Furthermore, the Romans considered the rebellion more of a policing matter than a war. Rome dispatched militia under the command of praetor Gaius Claudius Glaber , who besieged Spartacus and his camp on Mount Vesuvius, hoping that starvation would force Spartacus to surrender.
They were surprised when Spartacus, who had made ropes from vines, climbed down the cliff side of the volcano with his men and attacked the unfortified Roman camp in the rear, killing most of them.
The rebels also defeated a second expedition, nearly capturing the praetor commander, killing his lieutenants and seizing the military equipment.
Also due to Social War , some of Spartacus' ranks were legion veterans. The rural slave lived a life in the frontier thus better equipping themselves to march with Spartacus' army.
In contrast, urban slaves were more suited for city life, being considered "privileged" and "lazy. In these altercations Spartacus proved to be an excellent tactician , suggesting that he may have had previous military experience.
Though the rebels lacked military training , they displayed a skilful use of available local materials and unusual tactics when facing the disciplined Roman armies.
In the spring of 72 BC, the rebels left their winter encampments and began to move northward. At the same time, the Roman Senate , alarmed by the defeat of the praetorian forces, dispatched a pair of consular legions under the command of Lucius Gellius and Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus Clodianus.
These defeats are depicted in divergent ways by the two most comprehensive extant histories of the war by Appian and Plutarch. Alarmed at the continued threat posed by the slaves, the Senate charged Marcus Licinius Crassus , the wealthiest man in Rome and the only volunteer for the position,  with ending the rebellion.
A Thracian by birth, Spartacus served in the Roman army, perhaps deserted, led bandit raids, and was caught and sold as a slave.
With about 70 fellow gladiators he escaped a gladiatorial training school at Capua in 73 and took refuge on Mount Vesuvius , where other runaway slaves joined the band.
After defeating two Roman forces in succession, the rebels overran most of southern Italy. Ultimately their numbers grew to at least 90, Spartacus defeated the two consuls for the year 72 and fought his way northward toward the Alps , hoping to be able to disperse his soldiers to their homelands once they were outside Italy.
When his men refused to leave Italy, he returned to Lucania and sought to cross his forces over to Sicily but was thwarted by the new Roman commander sent against him, Marcus Licinius Crassus.
