I found this while perusing the interwebs!
The site I found it on claims that it was found in Egypt in the 1920s and it originates in the 2nd century CSE.
It also says that "Modern scholarship has not yet established the game for which these dice were used"...but any geek worth his salt knows the answer to that one. Hail Caesar! Now pass the pizza and roll up a d20!
Pretty friggin' cool. I'd love to have this baby sitting on the bookshelf in my living room.
