Domitian added the hypogeum at that point, after which flooding the stadium would have been impossible. Diversions In between the major events were other performances, usually comic events or lighthearted games designed to amuse the audience. For instance, writers of the time noted performances in which boys rode on bulls, elephants danced, and mock gladiator fights were staged between farm animals wearing armor. On one occasion, Emperor Gallienus, who ruled in the third century, punished a merchant who had tried to cheat the empress by selling artificial jewels to her.

Others wore helmets with no eyeholes at all, leading to contests that amounted to a deadly game of blind man’s bluff. And some wore almost nothing and were armed only with giant nets and tridents (three-pronged spears). Students were given blunt wooden versions of weapons to train with, to prevent fatalities, and they were generally treated quite well. Schools routinely provided massages, high-quality medical care, and nourishing meals. Since future warriors were considered valuable property, this was simply good business practice.

The humiliated jeweler was then allowed to return home. Also between the main events, spectators could take part in gambling, which was a constant and tolerated activity. They could also try to catch wooden balls that Colosseum personnel hurled into the bleachers; these balls could be redeemed later for food, money, or other gifts. Not surprisingly, scuffling for these tokens led to still more entertainment: frequent fights that broke out in the audience. Spectators could buy refreshments, such as cakes, pastries, dates, or wine, from roving vendors.
