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 (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 ring and dots. Bizarrely, one die does not form a perfect cube (termed a 'tablet die' by archaeologists).

 

 

Now available in the Timeless Galleries.
