Ok we all loved the movie, maybe the shows. And it occurred to me, we know Spartacus actually happened, throughout central and southern Italy
We also know that they raped and pillaged. And collected a vast hoard of treasure.
And let's face it, what do a bunch of marauders do when they get their hands on tons of Gold and Silver? THEY BURY IT!
Friends, acquaintances, people I don't know! How reasonable is it that at least 1% of Spartacus' army would have buried their share? Out of an
Army of approximately 30,000 that's 300 undiscovered buried treasure sites across Italy!
But wait! The more conventional estimate (hardly conservative) is 120,000 men pillaging and raping.
That's right friends. If only 1 out of a hundred men buried a gold vase here or a bag of silver coins, that's still 12,000 buried treasure
I think we should consider getting grant money to go in search of the "Lost Treasure of Spartacus", at the least we could make bank off a history
