This sport, along with the gladiator fights are very loved by the Romans but is much more safer. Who do you think drove the horses? No not the richer people or the middle class. They were the slaves. But some are very famous and rich from presents that were given to them.
Now I said that chariot racing is safer then the arena, however it is still pretty dangerous. Imagine, you fall out of your chariot. There are other horses and chariots blazing their way towards you. And then you get stepped on then ran over. Or imagine that your horse goes haywire and rams into another chariot with a very hard force. Still this sport is amazing and will be loved forever.

We believe that this epidemic started in the Parthian Empire. We also believe that this disease was brought here by the soldiers who fought against them. The smallpox seems to be spreading to different places around the area as well. We are sorry for the ones who were lost to this horrible disease and sorry to the ones who have it. Good Luck.
Even if the gods supposedly watch the games and enjoy it, I don't think the gods would want us to kill ourselves. I personally think that it is sick to send a man out to fight wild animals like bears and lions and watch him be ripped apart. And if the people of Rome want entertainment then there should be a safer and more humane way to find entertainment. Maybe we could pretend for there to be fights and death instead of the real thing.
Even with the strong armor it still doesn't protect them from razor sharp teeth and claws. Even if the gladiators sometimes killed the animals most of the time the animals would be victorious. What i'm trying to say is that even though this topic is arguable the evidence still points toward pointless death and fighting. July 6, 49 B.C.
He enjoyed his job as a farmer and a provider. His farm wasn't that big but it was a very important to this local area. He also enjoyed taking his children out to play on the farm.

Jealous of their sister they tried to convince Psyche that her husband was a monster and that she should escape. She went into her host's bedroom with a knife and a lamp.

Psyche prayed to Aphrodite for help, even though she was still jealous she told her to complete tasks that no mortal could do to prove her love to Eros. She had completed task after task and finally she was at the final one. She retrieved a black makeup box from the underworld that would make any woman so beautiful that they could not be resisted. Once Psyche had reached the surface she looked into the box and a foul smell came out that killed her. Eros shot her with a golden arrow and she was brought back to life. After the whole thing Eros and Aphrodite convinced Zeus to make Psyche immortal to be with Eros forever. July 6, 49 B.C.
