Laquearius (Latin: laquearius) is a type of ancient roman gladiator armed with a lasso (laqueus). Laquearii could be a variation of retiarius, who tried to catch their opponents with a lasso instead of a net. They most likely fought against opponents similar to those of the retiarius: murmillo, secutor, provocator. The armament was similar to that of the retiarius: manica, shoulder guard, lasso, trident, subligaculum. The helmet was absent.
