A man of great wealth, position, and considerable wisdom for his age, Marcus Crassus is the last hope the Roman Senate has to defeat the rebellion.

He amassed his extraordinary wealth through a series of shrewd business decisions but the honor of military success has always eluded him.

Now, Crassus has opportunity to gain that recognition using all means at his disposal to defeat Spartacus. Unlike his predecessors, Crassus will not underestimate this “mere slave;” the man has defeated countless Roman armies, and will do so again if not matched in brains as well as brawn.

But bringing death to Spartacus will require more than just money.

So, Crassus will call upon a young and battle experienced Julius Caesar to help, much to the envy of his oldest son Tiberius, who wants only to prove himself to his father.

The eldest son of Marcus Crassus, Tiberius wants nothing more than to prove himself to his father. He’s ready to lead, and presses hard for a position of leadership in Crassus’ army.

But Tiberius is living in the shadow of Julius Caesar; an ambitious and self- important young man who is, in many ways, the son Crassus wishes he had.

It’s a fact that Tiberius is very aware of, and one that causes much friction between himself and Caesar.

Tiberius is played by Christian Antidormi.
