Funerary gladiator relief, found near the archaeological site of Lucus Feroniae, an ancient sanctuary in Lazio (Italy), dating from the late 1st century BCE.

The reliefs depict the final phase of six fights between gladiators. They decorated the base of a funerary monument that most likely had a small temple at its top, similar to those at Aquileia and Glanum.
