T. Mummius wrote:When the Palestra in Pompeji was excavated, the bodies of several gladiators - one still shackled to an iron footbar - were found, and the body of one woman with money and gold necklace and earrings. This spurned some stories about "rich women making whoppee with gladiators", which are also testified in literature ...
Ok, here are my bets:
Antonius Felix: dead. Dies while getting Spendusa on a boat.
Mus: dead. Turns out to be Christian. Dead nonetheless.
Menander: survives. I don't know how, maybe on some errand.
Calatoria: dead, dead, dead. Probably the whole mountain crashes down upon her (while she rallies the Gladiators in Pompeji to her aid).
Speudon: dead, even before the volcano goes boom. Brought down as a scapegoat by Calatoria in her attempt to get away with her ordered muggings.
Mus' father: dead. Does something noble before he dies, either forgiving Antonius or accepting that his son is gay. or both.
Sejanti: dead. Struck down by something falling from above.
Spendusa: survives, with both her son and Antonius' stepson.
Petronia: dead. Probably after some struggle with a madly love-struck Antonius and her own destiny, the part of the mountain that doesn't fall upon Calatroria is heaped upon her.
Pliny the elder: dead (cameo appearance).
And here's my wager: if I lose (more than half of my guesses turn out wrong), I'll draw a small fan-art series (10 strips).
If I win, hm ... let praise and honour be my reward
