The Coloseum in Rome

One common feature was the many tour guides insisting that Christians were not killed at the coloseum. Well, perhaps the evidence is scant- we can't exactly collect DNA and correlate those killed there. Romans had a penchant for collecting victims from all strata and publicly killing them in gruesome ways so I find it hard to believe that Christians were segregated from the other victims provided for the reality show entertainment of the masses.
