|French term or phrase: Deja, dans les arenes romains, une serie de numeros se succedaient, comportant|
|non seulement des combats sanglants et cruels, mais aussi des prestations d'acrobates. Ces prestations ont traverse le temps. |
I would translate this as:
In the Roman arenas then, there was a number series succession, including not only blood and cruel battles, but also acrobat performances. These performances have lasted over time.
This sentence seems awkward to me (the French).The "deja" means "then" or "at that time."
I translated it as "then"
Thanks for any suggestions
|tailored your sentence a little...|
In the Roman arenas then, there was a successive series of numbers that not only included bloody and cruel combats, but also acrobatic performances. These performances have come down to us over time.

|Thanks for your help. This sentence confused me for a long time. It was the "deja" and "une serie de numeros se succedaient" that gave me all kinds of problem. So, fortunately, my translation was pretty accurate.|

Already at the times of the Romans, arenas presented numbers in succession, including bloody and cruel fights (I would not say battles, but can't come up with a better solution)and acrobatic performances (by acrobats). This type of show has survived the passing of time.
It is the end of the day....
