Availability: In stock
On this t-shirt you can find a depiction of Vercingetorix, the leader of the Gauls, surrendering to Caesar after the siege of Alesia. The image is a stylized version of the painting "Vercingetorix throws down his arms at the feet of Julius Caesar", by a French artist Lionel Royer. 
The words "VAE VICTIS" mean "woe to the vanquished". In the legend described by Livy, they were originally said by a Galic Romans and Gauls. Three and a half centuries later, it was the Romans who triumphed. Caesar, proconsul of Rome at the time, after having conquered the whole Gallic territory, crushed the uprising led by Vercingetorix and effectively put an end to any hopes of Gallic independence for centuries.
