Kerza with the mark of "Fugitivus" on his forehead.

A fugitivus was a runaway slave who had escaped from their owner.

Escaped slaves who were recaptured could be flogged or even executed, or given 'lesser' sentences such as being sold as gladiators or conscripted to the mines.

Notable Fugitivus[]

  • Kerza (tattooed to his forehead, later killed by Ixion)
  • Diona (Executed by Caburus)
  • Aurelia (branded by Glaber's men, with it carved into her flesh, died of her wounds)
  • Kore (crucified)
