The Servile Wars were a series of three slave revolts ("servile" is derived from "servus", Latin for "slave") in the late Roman Republic:

  • First Servile War: 135 BC – 132 BC in Sicily, led by Eunus, a former slave claiming to be a prophet, and Cleon from Cilicia
  • Second Servile War: 104 BC – 100 BC in Sicily, led by Athenion and Tryphon
  • Third Servile War: 73 BC – 71 BC in mainland Italy, led by Spartacus
