I wonder who has the better thac0 progression a Roman Legionnaire, a Greek Hoplite, or an Egyptian Charioteer?
Thanks for posting this OP.
I tend to agree with the poster saying it was possibly a religious tool or some other implement other than gaming. The reason I agree with that, is
that most people who gamble like to be able to understand the numbers they are wagering on. Were it a gaming implement we would see at least some
recognizable numbers and or letters. I don't know what language the characters on the die are so I have to defer to those who have a better
understanding of the languages used historically in the region found. Since the Romans and Greeks both ruled Egypt I wouldn't be surprised if it were
Latin or Greek. Also given Egypt's location, it could be from any trading culture like the Phoenecians as well.
