A Roman Dodecahedra
bronze Roman artifacts found in France, Switzerland and Germany
pose a fascinating problem for archaeologists: they just don’t
have a clear purpose, but many are covered in symbols, some
undecipherable and others relating to the Zodiac. But for all the
speculation on their use, including that they may have been
surveying instruments, some experts believe the Roman dodecahedra
were merely decorative candlesticks.
