A beautifully preserved pair of Roman Bone Dice dating from 1st - 3rd Century A.D. One can almost imagine a long-gone Roman soldier playing with these dice in a dark and smoky tavern (or taberna), lit with oil-burning lamps and packed with rowdy legionaries almost two millennia ago. And who can forget Titus Pullo in the HBO series Rome, losing his salary to loaded dice - 'Wise men and Graces on four!'
Measuring around half an inch in width, the dice are marked with rings and dots.
Now available in the Timeless Galleries.
