A particular kind of PeriodPiece set in ancient biblical or mythological times, running the gamut from HeroicFantasy to HistoricalFiction; movies set in the [[AncientGrome Roman empire]] [[HollywoodHistory usually included]]. Alternatively, it may be used to describe FantasyCounterpartCulture equivalents in a secondary world. The subgenre of low-budget SwordAndSandal Italian films of the 50s and 60s is the Peplum.

SwordAndSandal flicks in the [[TheTimeOfLegends Golden Age of Myth]] were especially popular in UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfHollywood; compare EpicMovie. Expect the landscape to resemble sand dunes and/or [[CaliforniaDoubling rural Spain]] throughout, making those sandals look more attractive.
