The Arena is a location in Ankh-Morpork during the time of The Colour of Magic, used by the Patrician at the time as a form of punishment. Not a very pleasant experience- the Patrician threatens to throw Rincewind in the Arena should he refuse to help keep Twoflower safe, knowing that it would motivate the cowardly Rincewind to do as the Patrician wanted.
