Unidentified cast

This film was shot entirely in Yugoslavia. There are a few uncredited speaking roles of some importance that might possibly be Italians, but otherwise all the actors here are certainly Yugoslav.

The credited "Giuseppe Marotti" is a mystery. There are no other known credits for this actor and I listened carefully to both the Italian and English soundtracks and there is no character named "Rutilio". I had previously assumed he was the old slave merchant in 21A / 21B, but his character is named "Rufo" in the Italian and "Rufus" in the English, which, though similar, is still significantly different that you would not mistake one for the other. Could those notorious Italian credit writers have got both the name and role incorrect? We may never know!

As for the 2 uncredited actors listed on IMDb

C.S.C. actor/director Ignazio Dolce would be very likely to appear. He is credited as an assistant director and he appears in a substantial role in Il vecchio testamento, which was shot back-to-back with this film with almost identical casts. I am pretty sure he plays the role of Fabrizio, not seen too clearly but of some importance, seen in image 4 on the left and in 8. What do others think?

The role of "Fabrizio"

IMDb lists Yugoslav actor Janez Vrhovec as playing the role of "Ciparisso" but, once again, I could not find any role of this name. I do think he could be playing the role of the Captain of Tirteo's army, who, as far as I could find, never gets called by name, but is nevertheless a quite substantial role (seen in 19, 26, 54, 55 and 66). Again what do others think?

I think Ray Martino needs a topic, who we also have credited in El hijo del capitán Blood and uncredited and previously undocumented in Totò e Cleopatra. He only has 7 listings on ANICA, while his IMDb listings are a mess, with them saying "Ray Martino" is a pseudonym of various other actors. Does anybody know anything about him?
