Decoratively the dice is castThe saying "the dice is cast" serves as a saying for expressing, that certain events can not be undone or are inevitably still to come. The Latin formulation comes from Sueton's biography about Cesar, who appeared with his army at the Rubicon on the 10th of January in 49 BC - the border river between the province Gallia cisalpina and Italy. The region could not be entered by any Roman emperor with his army. But when Cesar was standing there still undecided, a huge figure appeared, took the trumpet of one of the soldiers, played alarm and crossed the river. As a result of that Cesar said: "Eatur quo deorum ostenta et inimicorum iniquitas vocat. Iacta alea est." - " Let us accept this as a sign from the Gods, and follow where they beckon, in vengeance on our double-dealing enemies. The dice is cast." (Sueton: Divus Iulius, 32f).
Ancient design and waterproofStraight from Italy do the coasters for glasses out of real marble come. On the back is a thin cork protection for not scratching the table's surface. In a lavish process of thermo printing the coloured images are printed, which are only elected by the Forum Traiani with ancient motives. See for yourself and let yourself be inspired by the variety of ancient coasters to a very special gift of idea of decoration for your living space!
