Considering the work by Ellen Meiksins Wood about “the myth of idle mob” in Greece, it is discusses how some scholars have been studying this subject on the Roman world. It also tries to explore some other ways to understand the fights, as shows that fascinated the Romans and had great popularity on the Empire’s daily life.<br>Este artigo consiste em uma reflexão inicial acerca do papel das lutas de gladiadores romanos e da participação das pessoas de diferentes camadas sociais em tais espetáculos. A partir de uma discussão do trabalho de Ellen Meiksins Wood sobre o “mito da plebe desocupada” na Grécia, procuramos discutir como alguns classicistas têm tratado a questão no mundo romano e a possibilidade de trilhar caminhos alternativos para o estudo das lutas, eventos de grande popularidade no cotidiano do Império
