Carpophores was unlike many other popular Roman gladiators of his day. While the likes of Crixus and Spartacus fought against other men in armed combat inside of the gladiatorial rings of Rome, Carpophores was what is known as a Bestiarius. These types of gladiators fought exclusively against wild animals and often had short-lived careers.
On the obverse of the 6 oz MK Barz Hand Poured Skull Warrior Mask you’ll find a replica of the mask worn by Carpophores. Rome’s greatest Bestiarius, he is said to have defeated a bear, lion, and leopard during a single battle inside the Flavian Amphitheatre and in another battle on that same day he managed to slaughter a rhinoceros with a spear.
The might of Carpophores was evident in the fact that he once killed 20 wild animals in one day, and led many of his fellow gladiators to compare him to the famed Roman demi-god Hercules, whose power was unrivaled.
The reverse face of all 6 oz MK Barz Hand Poured Skull Warrior Masks feature a flat surface with engravings that have been hand stamped by MK Barz. Included on this face are the markings of the refinery name, weight, purity, and metal content of the bar, and the individual serial number assigned to the bar.
MK Barz is a family-owned and operated minting facility located in Los Angeles, California. The refinery opened in 2014 by owners with 45 years of experience collecting and grading coins, and they excel in the production of silver bullion products.
