These were specially trained Gladiators who specialized in the use of whips and Lassos (ropes). The wore no real armor protection (save heavy linen and woolen leg Greaves). Like most Gladiators, they wore the linen version of The Arm Manica. They carried a Gladius Sword as their secondary “killing” weapon. They relied on the whip or Lasso (much as The Retiarii did his Snare Net). They were skilled enough to be able to snare their Opponent's legs, arms and weapons. Once done, they could effectively “wrap up” their Opponent and use their Sword to finish them off.
