Gladiator Armour
A retiarius (“net fighter”) with a trident and cast net, fighting a secutor (79 AD mosaic).

Various gladiators are  armoured in various different ways, but almost all leave the torso highly exposed, because gladiators are expected to use shields or other additional protection.

Gladiator armour commonly consists of a sturdy helmet, greaves to protect the lower legs, and metal or hardened leather on one shoulder and arm. Even more so than the hoplite armours, gladiator armour leaves the wearer disastrously vulnerable if worn without a shield. If it is used without a shield of some sort or another, the armour bonus of gladiator armour is temporarily reduced to +1.
