[Oenomaus presents Gannicus with the Rudius] You have earned the Rudius. Proof you no longer stand a slave.
GANNICUS
[Gannicus studies the Rudius] A lifetime of blood.
OENOMAUS
And victory. It lifts troubled heart to see my brother gain his freedom. Mellita would have been proud.
GANNICUS
Oenomaus. She loved you. Above all others.
OENOMAUS
The thought shall keep me warm... until I join her in the afterlife.
GANNICUS
And I shall me you both there.

CRIXUS
[Before Gannicus leaves the Ludus] You have not yet had proper contest.
GANNICUS
Win your own freedom and seek me out.
