Product Description
The design of this 20-sided die is based on peculiar artefacts from the ancient Roman world known as Roman Dodecahedrons. Nobody is sure how the dodecahedrons were used - they range from about 4 to 11 centimetres in diameter, were mostly made of bronze (though some stone examples are known), and had holes of variable sizes on each face. Suggestions for their purpose have ranged from tools for aiming weapons, observing the stars, calculating the right time to plant crops, and indeed being used as dice! I took the latter suggestion as inspiration, and created an icosahedron of similar design. Perfect for adding some historical flair to your tabletop gaming!

This die features the standard D20 number format; the spindown version can be found here.

Note: These dice are heavier than a typical plastic D20, and can dent surfaces - rolling trays are recommended when using them.
