The Roman chariot is the two-horse vehicle used in ancient Rome for sport, transport and ceremonies. Other animals may replace horses occasionally in royal ceremonies. The term chariot is also used by modern scholars for similar chariots of other Indo-European cultures, particularly the two-horse chariot of the ancient Greeks and Celts. The driver of the chariot is a bigarius.

Other Latin words that distinguish chariots based on the number of animals yoked in a team are quadriga, a four-horse chariot used for racing and associated with the Roman triumph; triga, or three-horse chariot, probably driven more often for ceremonies than for racing, and seiugis or seiuga, the six-horse chariot, which ran more rarely and required a high degree of skill on the part of the driver. The chariot and quadriga are the most common types.

Two-horse chariots are a common icon on Roman coins, as is the bigatus, a type of denarius so called because it depicted a chariot.
