Carceri et Dracones

Roman D20Truly there is Nothing New Under the Sun.
(Carceri et Dracones is 'Dungeons and Dragons' in Latin, IIRC.)

The picture is of an Icosahedral die made of glass, dated to the 2nd century AD, used to play a Roman Game of unknown characteristics.

But then again, we live in a world of rapid change (so much so that it's a cliche). But who would have thought, even 10 years ago, that they'd be selling DNA Sequencers as Kids toys?
