It has Italian dialogue and Italian subtitles for the hard-of-hearing. Nice picture quality, though not as nice as the German Blu-Ray which has German or Italian dialogue and German subtitles. These are the longest versions available.
The matching Italian DVD is not as good as the earlier Italian release. It's been colour-corrected and is bluer and softer than the earlier release; the latter also benefits from the inclusion of an interview with Carla Leone.
All the above are the most complete versions, which you can identify by:
1. They have the matte painting of the Phoenician fleet.
2. They have a dialogue scene between Dario (Rory Calhoun) and Mirta (Mabel Karr) after the rebels have escaped from the sacrificial altar and arrived at their hideout.
