Roman Gladiator is an outdoor 1881 bronze sculpture by Guillaume Geefs, installed in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, in the U.S. state of California. The statue depicts a nude man holding a sword, and wearing a cloak and helmet. It measures approximately 100 x 36.25 x 33 inches, and rests on a base that measures approximately 40 x 44 x 44 inches. The bronze plaque on the front of the base reads: IN COMMEMORATION / OF THE INAUGURATION / OF THE / CALIFORNIA MIDWINTER INTERNATIONAL / EXPOSITION / ON THIS SPOT THE FIRST SHOVELFULL OF EARTH WAS TURNED / WITH CEREMONIES ON AUGUST 24th 1893.
