Rebels bands, whose leaders each pretend to be Spartacus, striking all over the region confuse the Romans. One of two columns with mainly women and children thus escapes, the other is captured and bloodily made into examples, crucified along the Via Appia. Once Crassus realizes the truth about Tiberius, Kore suffers the same fate. Spartacus cunningly prepared the battle field he chose to oppose Crassus's legions in a desperate last battle, with Gannicus in commanded of a mounted reserve to pincer the Roman infantry. Nevertheless, the last true gladiators fall one by one, so Crassus and Caesar triumph, only to be forced politically to allow Pompey, who actually arrived to late, to take the main credit, so as to forge the triumvirate which will take over Rome.

At the end of the final battle, Agron and Nasir carry a mortally wounded Spartacus away from the battlefield where he later dies and is buried. This matches with the vacillating historical account of the real Spartacus; who was said to have been struck down in battle, but whose body was never discovered. (His corpse could not be paraded around by the Romans as an example.) With so little facts surrounding his disappearance, Historians have never agreed whether Spartacus survived and escaped, or was truly killed. See more
