Lysimachus was a gladiator who served Vettius, and subsequently Solonius after he took over his ludus. Though mentioned in Spartacus: Blood and Sand he appears exclusively in Spartacus: Gods of the Arena.
Gods of the Arena
Ashur, in a rare display of fighting ability, hammers his way aggressively past Lysimachus' defenses and slashes the man's throat with his sica, thus ending both his life and his short time as a gladiator under Solonius' ownership.
Watching the match, Solonius - for his part - does not seem pleased.
Blood and Sand
When Ashur attempts to rejoin the Brotherhood as a gladiator, Batiatus is not in fa vour of the decision. Ashur lists the defeat of Lysimachus among his triumphs in the arena, alongside the deaths of Hasdrubal and Kleitos. However, Batiatus dismisses all these 'victories' without regard, and proclaims Ashur's days in the arena to be over.
- When Lysimachus is killed, Ashur is not wearing a helmet... meaning either he entered battle without one or - more likely - Lysimachus managed to knock it off during an earlier (unseen) part of their fight. They also appear to have swapped shields!
