Alea iacta est

"The dice is cast," better "The dice is thrown."

Approachable Roman everyday life

"Alea iacta est!", with these words Caesar crossed the Rubicon, the frontier of his province of Gaul and Italy, with his mighty army. This would change the history of Rome forever. The dices, "aleas" were proscribed in Rome since they were the symbol of gambling per se. However many Romans owned dices and played board with their society. Some of the games exist even today in a slightly modified form. Bring a piece of Roman history into your living room.
This Roman dices with the measure 1.5x1.5x1.5 cm, are a plastic replica off an ancient Roman bone dice as it used to be in the Roman Empire.

Dices for everyone

Roman dices for Roman games
