What do you think this is?


A Mystery Roman Object

This strange object is made of bronze. It has 12 sides. Each side is a pentagon shape with a hole in the middle. On every corner except one, there is a little ball.

Objects like this have been found on Roman sites in Britain. People don’t really know what they were used for. Maybe a candle holder? Maybe a dice? What do you think?
