: : Where does the saying going something like "Those who are about to die salute you" come from?

: From beautiful, downtown Rome, IT around 75BC or so.
: Spoken by gladiators as they entered an arena.
: "Ave Caesar.." Whoops, cant do that.
: Err..."Hail Caesar, Those who are about to die salute you".

The phrase is "For those about to rock, we salute you." It is an ACDC song.
