Ilithyia (Viva Bianca) was one of the main antagonists of Spartacus: Blood and Sand. She is the daughter of senator Albinius and the wife of Gaius Claudius Glaber.



She hates Spartacus for no apparent reason, and forms a close friendship with Lucretia, frequently visiting the ludus. An arrangement where Ilithyia has sex with Crixus is set up, but a jealous Lucretia instead has a masked Ilithyia lay with a masked Spartacus. Licinia, cousin of Marcus Crassus, and Lucretia interrupt, causing Ilithyia to kill Licinia.

Ilithyia then seduces the boy Numerius into having Varro, Spartacus's only friend, put to death by Spartacus. Evil and cowardly, Ilithyia escapes during the revolt but unregretfully causes the death of many friends by locking the doors to prevent anyone escaping as the rebels go on a murderous rampage through the ludus. She is later seen pregnant, and although not confirmed until much later, she actually carries Spartacus' child.

She plans to dissolve her marriage to Glaber and become Varinius' wife. He later turns from her, and when she is kidnapped by Gannicus, Glaber begins an affair with Seppia. Ilithya later returns after Spartacus lets her go, and kills Seppia who was about to kill Glaber. They then reunite, bonded by vengeance and his ambition to gain power in Rome. But after Glaber tells her to kill Lucretia, Ilythia is about to do so when her water breaks. Lucretia, revealing that, all along, she has been madly set on bringing a child at last to her husband, cuts the baby from her womb and falls over the cliff with it. Ilythia, who had crawled out to witness this, then dies.
