This volume collects the Proceedings of the International Congress entitled Warriors at play. Otium, learning and isonomy, held at the Museum of History and Archaeology of Elche, on 28th May 2021. The eleven contributions analyse the relationship between game and war. Two topics usually considered to belong to two opposite spheres, but actually two very osmotic domains. The papers show, with different approaches to this complex topic, the cultural role played by ludus and bellum in shaping the social structure of different cultures in Classical antiquity.
