Object type: DIE
Broad period: ROMAN
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper-alloy gaming die of Roman to Post-Medieval date, though the item is likely Medieval to Post-Medieval, based on its patina. The item is cuboid in shape and the faces are worn and degraded in places. Because of the wear on the faces, it is difficult to be sure of the number patterning on the faces, though these do seem to be irregular (ie, opposite faces do NOT add up to 7). The numbers are shown by small triangular shaped gauges or incisions on each of the faces. It is very difficult to date such gaming pieces with accuracy as they have been used since Roman times up to th…

Copper-alloy toilet article of Roman date c. AD43-410. The item is likely a Roman ligula or a similar small implement used for cosmetic purposes. It features a cylindrical shaft which tapers toward a thinner flattened end where the 'scoop' portion is located. The scoop itself is circular and is slightly dished, forming a concavity in the centre. The shaft is bent in a curved right-angle at the opposite end to the scoop, and the tip of this end appears to be broken, suggesting that the item was originally longer. ​Dimensions: weight: 1.4g, length: 37.6mm, width: 4.5mm, thickness: 2.2
