Violent passions climaxed in the 'Arena Of Lust' . . .
Sextus Propertius, British by birth, was the top gladiator of Ancient Rome during the Empire's decadent heyday. As such, he could have his pick of the city's sensation-hungry women. And he did. Enthusiastically. Frequently. The mass slaughter in the arena only seemed to sharpen his voracious appetite for the pleasures of the living, eager female flesh that thronged beyond its bloody sands. From wanton slave girls to lustful aristocratic ladies at the highest levels of Imperial society, Sextus proved himself, time and again, the noblest Roman of them all . . .
Recently discovered in a miraculous state of preservation during excavations in a British city famous for its Roman remains, the scrolls of Sextus's graphically explicit memoirs have been translated into uninhibited modern English for the benefit of today's readership. They are essential reading for anyone fascinated by the violence and sensuality of a lusty bygone era.
