British Posters of PEPLUM films not released in North America

When Italian/Euro PEPLUM epics were dubbed in English, it wasn't only for the US market as these British posters attest. Most of these posters are for films which weren't released theatrically in North America. The titles are also different. MACISTE THE MIGHTY (SON OF SAMSON) and THE SLAVE WOMAN (QUEEN OF BABYLON) are the only two films from this bunch to have made it at the movies. Because of this these posters are rarities and should fetch a lot of money but the PEPLUM genre is alas not highly regarded.
