Historians claim that chariot
racing was the most popular sport in ancient Rome,
appealing to all social classes from slaves to
gladiators all the way up to the emperor himself.
The popularity of Roman chariot racing is reflected
in the many Roman household items that were decorated
with valiant charioteer racing motifs. Roman slaves
were often made into charioteers (called aurigae
or agitatores), or gladiators, who fought for
their freedom with the aid of a team of horses,
a chariot and perhaps some armor. Notice the Trojan
mohawk on the helmet of the chariot driver statue.
