     Publius Varinius 

Publius Varinius (Brett Tucker)

"Crassus? Yes, I have dined and bathed with him on many occasions. A man large of coin, small of cock."

Publius Varinius is a high-ranking Praetor in the Roman Senate. His power and influence rivals Glaber’s own, causing much friction between the two as Varinius seeks to use Spartacus' rebellion as a way to gain favor for himself in the Republic, and knows that catching Spartacus would bring him glory.



Seppius (Tom Hobbs)

Seppius is a young Roman noble and older brother of Seppia. In Vengeance, he leads a local militia intent on capturing Spartacus.


Seppia (Hanna Mangan-Lawrence)

"Is he not handsome and rich...and of means!"

Seppia is the beautiful younger sister of Seppius, whose youthful innocence hides a much more cunning and devious nature.

     The Egyptian 

The Egyptian (Stephen Dunlevy)

The Egyptian is a mysterious character who works as a member of Ashur's Group.


Marcus (Luke Pegler)

Marcus is the Military Tribune of Gaius Claudius Glaber.


Salvius (Paul Glover)

Salvius is a soldier, and later Tribune, serving under Glaber.

  • Butt-Monkey: Him getting beaten up by various characters verges on a Running Joke. Also, despite being an experienced soldier who handles most of the army logistics and demonstrates Undying Loyalty to his commander, he gets sidelined by said commander in favor of a Smug Snake slave.
  • Canon Foreigner
  • The Chew Toy
  • Hero Killer: Kills Mira with a thrown axe, although his intended target was Spartacus. Nevertheless, this still makes him the only Roman to kill a significant member of the rebellion in Vengeance.
  • Interrupted Intimacy: You've got to admire his poker face when he walks in on Glaber cheating on his wife with Seppia, to report the kidnapping of said wife no less.
  • Killed Off for Real
  • Mook Lieutenant: Takes over this role after Marcus is killed.
  • Not in the Face!: Happens to him repeatedly, first by Spartacus, then by Ashur, and then by Spartacus again ( fatally) in the finale.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain
  • Scars Are Forever: Averted - he bounces back surprisingly well from repeated face-smashings.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: An unusual villainous example, though subverted. Spartacus is fast enough to dodge it, but Mira (who was behind him) isn't.
  • Villainous Valour: In Balance, he saves Glaber's life from Spartacus, despite being disarmed at the time. He is also the last man standing in Glaber's defence in the finale.
