My comment... yeah, all but Quintus Battiatus.
Still wondering why they changed his historical name.
They did? I thought that was one of the accepted spellings/names. Its not like they know a lot about the guy anyway, and Quintus was a much better character than whatever they called him in the Kirk Douglas version.
Well, we know his real name!

The real lanista of the ludus at Capua was named Cnaeus Lentulus Batiatus.

I don't really see a reason to have changed his given name to "Quintus" for the show.
