The reliefs of the Porta Stabia and the Thermal Museum of Rome show a clear front and rear view of the pectorale of the Prvocator. In the Temple of Augustus in Pula, on the base of a statue, there is the griffin, symbol of Nemesis and motif animal of our Pullus. Nemesis is the goddess of luck, revenge and of course gladiators.

After the research, the blacksmith of the Croatian gladiators Luca agreed to put his art also into our service. He got this fancy measurement.

The pectorale is made of 1,3mm steel. Here is a clear deviation from the original – for reasons of care and durability. It is fastened with crossed leather straps in a metal guide on the back as seen in the porta stabia relief.

We have used a width of 270mm and a height of 250mm according to the measurement ratio of the used reliefs.

I hoped to inaugurate the Pectorale at the Gladaitorensymbosium 2020 but after Covid-19 we wait for 2021.
