By common custom, the spectators decided whether or not a losing gladiator should be spared, and chose the winner in the rare event of a "standing tie". Most matches employed a senior referee (summa rudis) and an assistant, shown in mosaics with long staffs (rudes) to caution or separate opponents at some crucial point in the match. A gladiator's self-acknowledged defeat, signaled by a raised finger (ad digitum), would end the combat at the referee's discretion.

The last battle of the Roman Empire was in 451AD between an alliance of Rome (which was failing) and the Visigoths in France (Gaul) against Attila the Hun and the Huns. The Romans won a strategic and decisive victory, and later the Huns were wiped out by the Teuton tribes after losing this battle. Although it was a major victory it did not stop Rome from collapsing and finally being sacked in 476. Rome staggered on for some time afterwards but it was never the same or powerful again.
