The Prestige totals were now such that in this, the fourth round of the campaign, Primus could win. To do this, though he had to win both of his bouts.
Primus was asked to provide a light gladiator, so sensibly selected the experienced veles Publius. Secundus was asked for a heavy, and selected Victor, hoping to get him some experience and a skill. Finally Tertius was asked for his most experienced gladiator, and chose the light gladiator, Albia.
This gave the following matchups: Publius vs Hipployta, Victor vs Ombos and Albia vs Artemisia. Primus had both of his big guns out, intent on a win. Obviously if they were taken down that would mean extra Prestige for Terius and Secundus.
I suspect that it was because they'd be cheated of another round of the campaign; Ombos's win meant that Primus now had the 15 Prestige needed to win the campaign.
The crowd granted it.

Tertius - 6 Prestige - Wins: 0, Losses (Missio): 6, Losses (No Missio): 2
