"The time has come for Antiogos, dragon of the Seleucid Empire! Marvel at his command over flame!"
―The Cyrene Arena owner describing The Seleucid.[src]

The Seleucid was a Greek gladiator who fought in the Arena in Cyrene. He typically fought armed with a glaive.

In 47 BCE, he was challenged by the Medjay Bayek of Siwa, who witnessed him throwing a sword at one of the spectators in the arena. Bayek later defeated the gladiator with a spear and shield.

Trivia

  • The name Seleucid is a reference to the Seleucid Empire, possibly hinting that the gladiator originated from the state.
  • It is possible that the Seleucid's real name is 'Antiogos' because of one of the commentator's lines before the fight.
    • Αντιοχος (Antiochos), from Greek αντι (anti) "against, compared to, like" and οχη (oche) "support", was the name of several rulers of the Seleucid Empire.
