Dice are the oldest gambling instruments known to man. Sophocles, the Greek poet, claimed that dice were invented by the Greek, Palamedes, during the siege of Troy in 484 BC. Palamedes is said to have dedicated the first set of dice to Tyche, the Goddess of luck & fortune.
Ivory dice from at least 1400B.C. were uncovered in Egypt. The six sided dice of today evolved from ankle bones, often called knuckle bones, of hoofed animals. Dice are still called “bones” thus playing with dice is still known as “rolling the bones”. The Romans called the six sided dice Tesserea. Roman soldiers would hide the dice in their mouths. Playing dice games while on duty was frowned upon even in 100B.C. Since 900 B.C., six sided dice opposite sides add up to 7. (1:6, 2:5, 3:4 )

Oh my Goddess, she's beautiful!

I had been searching all over Etsy for something like this and was going to just get a regular coin and make my own pendant until I realized the sides would likely be reversed.

I came upon this by accident and was immediately sold.
It's so perfect. I absolutely love it.
Thank you very much! 😍🦉
