Skálmē (sword in Thracian, written below the hero Spartacus)
PRE-SALE (Starts Shipping August 1st)
This is the second design in a new Heroic series. The idea is to highlight ancient military leaders, visionaries and others who’s deeds irrevocably changed the world.
Spartacus, a Thracian man who was captured, sold into slavery and became a gladiator. He rose up in the ranks to become an infamous gladiator. Preferring to live free or die in the attempt, he led a successful rebellion and escaped his captivity. He then led a notorious army that ravaged the Roman countryside for a few years, devastating armies before finally losing his life in a battle. A symbol of freedom and resistance.
The word in Thracian is Skálmē which roughly translates to sword. It’s a Thracian word written in the Greek alphabet. It’s one of the few words we have from their culture that survive, fitting for a design of Spartacus.
It's in a FITTED Polyblend shirt. This is a lighter, more comfortable and fitted shirt.
