To put one’s trust in another often brings about an untimely end in the world of Spartacus as witnessed by the fallen victims of Ashur’s serpent tongue and Quintus Batiatus’ dirty dealings. Treachery is every bit the equal to the swiftest blade and those that do not learn this hard lesson die the most gruesome, bloody death.

Sizzling Hot! The Women of Spartacus

Courtesy Maxim

On a show that is known for ultra-violent gladiator battles, the women of Spartacus television series do not take a backseat to their male counterparts. Set in approximately 72 – 71 BC, women, like the men, are unhindered by Christian puritanical values and will scheme, betray, maim, slaughter, seduce or all of the above in their pursuit of power, wealth, societal status, freedom, love and vengeance. Unlike passive female characters on other television series, the women of Spartacus are the living embodiment of deception, sexual depravity, courage and tenacity.

For those that have never watched Spartacus, the character descriptions below, some of which intentionally sound like cheesy personal ads, are light on major spoilers, if any at all. However, the Best Kills section will contain spoilers but can only be viewed by hovering over it with your mouse. Caution: Some images may be too hot and provocative for you. Can you handle the hotness of Spartacus’ women? Find out below.
