Factual error: One of the naked female dancers at the party has breast implants. Although some forms of plastic surgery were known to the Romans, breast augmentation was not one of them. If you want to check for yourself she appears just after the masked dwarf moves through the shot.
Spartacus: Blood and Sand (2010)
Starring: Lucy Lawless, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah, Daniel Feuerriegel
Factual error: During the final battle as Saxa starts using the ballista against the Romans in the front, the ballista is portrayed as a weapon launching multiple projectiles at once, while in reality it only launched one at the time.
Other mistake: In the scene where Barca is bleeding at the pool, Batiatus comes and grabs his hair. Barca abruptly moves before Batiatus starts to actually pull his hair.
Spartacus: Gannicus stands the only among us to win his freedom upon the sands.
Laeta: If free, why does he raise arms with the slaves against the republic?
Spartacus: He took up cause to honor a fallen brother - one that taught many of us the ways of battle, and the bond that joins all men and such with it.
Spartacus: Sura and I often spoke of children. A family we were going to have now forever denied me. As I now deny Glaber of his.
Ilithyia: The child is yours.
Spartacus: You lie.
Ilithyia: Would then my tongue make false noise? It yet speaks bitter truth. Monthly blood ceased after you came to me in Batiatus' villa. Lucretia had promised Crixus - a cruel jest. Tis a memory that lingers, is it not? Of that night. Of you inside me.
Spartacus: Yes. As does memory of my hands around your throat.
Ilithyia: Can he do it again? Make him do it again.
