Features
Only the Emperor could grand a Gladiator his freedom. That freedom could be obtained if the Gladiator bravely distinguished himself in a particular fight or if he had fulfilled his contract. The symbol of freedom given to a Gladiator was a wooden sword called a Rudis.

Also, EVOCATUS, was the Latin term for a soldier in the Roman Army who had served out his time and obtained a discharge.
