Have you ever heard of the word naumachia? Until I got to Rome I hadn’t either, but it’s a word the Romans used to describe simulated naval fights…

The Roman historian Cassius Dio stated that in 86 AD inside the amphitheater a sea fight took place. Ships, weapons and thousands of men were brought in and engage in battles, to make a naumachia a colossal event, even sea creatures were shipped in from around the globe. This explains why hence why McCor put an octopus inside the Colosseum.
