Spartacus Wiki

Pulvinus of the Capua arena.

The Pulvinus, or "royal box", at an arena, is where the editor, sponsor, dignitaries, and important guests (and sometimes their families and slaves) sit to watch the games. Unlike the rest of the arena, the Pulvinus was covered and protected from the heat and had better seating.


  • According to DVD commentary, The pulvinus was not created by CGI, unlike most of the area.
