The Gladiator 3: City of Fire by Andrew Quiller

The Gladiator (aka The Eagles) 3
City of Fire
by Andrew Quiller (Kenneth Bulmer and/or Laurence James)
1976 Pinnacle

Marcus Brittanicus is a Roman soldier seeking vengeance on those who raped and killed his mother. Here he travels from Britain to Pompeii, occasionally murdering, occasionally fending off assassination attempts, but mostly hanging out in taverns and getting laid.

Some OK sequences, such a drowning in a vomitorium and an extended death by lava scene, but the whole thing seemed a bit restrained for depraved Rome, or 70s British exploitation writers for that matter.
