Roman dodecahedron mystery

Post by SpursKing on Sat Sep 05, 2009 7:56 pm

A Roman dodecahedron is a small hollow object made of bronze or stone, with a dodecahedral
shape: twelve flat pentagonal faces, each having a circular hole in the
middle which connects to the hollowed-out center. Roman dodecahedra
date from the 2nd or 3rd centuries CE.


The function or use of the dodecahedra remains a mystery; no mention of
them has been found in contemporary accounts or pictures of the time.
Speculated uses include candlesticks (wax was found inside one
example); dice; survey instruments; that they were used to calibrate
water pipes; and army standard
bases. It has also been suggested that they may have been religious
artifacts of some kind. This latter speculation is based on the fact
that most of the examples have been found in Gallo-Roman sites.
