This light tunnel, with a rounded shape and magnificent details with a scene of combat between murmurs, is one of the best examples we can find of Roman light tunnel. The murmillos were a kind of gladiators from the time of the Roman Empire. The main tear that distinguished the murmillo was the crest of its helmet that had a shape that resembled that of a fish. It is believed that the style of dress and weapons of this type of gladiator was derived from the Gallic prisoners.
