Lignum

A rarer type of Roman die, perhaps not due to cost of material as much as durability through the ages. I am very attached to this ebony cube - conventionally sized for the era at around 10mm per edge, opposing faces adding to seven, and diagonal two orientation. Triple-concentric pips filled with what appears to be a gypsum paint.
