The reverse of the coin is struck with a spectacular high relief artwork. The rim bears the name of the coin and the series, with the pattern on the background. Secutor stands for the ‘follower’ or ‘chaser’, and this type of heavy armored gladiator was created to specifically fight a retiarius, a lightly armored gladiator with a trident and a net. Their opposition usually embodied the “fisherman” and a “fish” and was also associated with Neptune against Vulcan.
