On the mural you can see a soldier-murmillon in a helmet. He holds a shield in one hand and a short sword in the other. Confronts him Thracian Gladiator, who received during the battle several severe wounds and bleeds. The Thracian may be signaling a pardon with his gesture. The mural is quite large: the length of the work is 1.5 m, and it reaches a width of 1.12 m. not far From the room in which the mural was found, there were barracks in which the soldiers lived.
