At the Colosseum, the crowd supposedly gives the gladiators "thumbs up" as the "let him live" sign and the "thumbs down" as the "kill him" sign. However, this is historically inaccurate. According to Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable
, "In the ancient Roman combats, when a gladiator was vanquished it rested with the spectators to decide whether he should be slain or not. If they wished him to live, they shut up their thumbs in their fists; if to be slain they turned out their thumbs."

Actually, there is still dispute on whether or not thumbs up meant death or not.
