This piece is similar to ones from RR times.The game of knucklebones had been played since ancient times. Sophocles in a fragment, ascribed the invention of knucklebones to Palamedes, during the Trojan War.

Each knucklebone had two broad and two narrow sides, upon which it could stand, representing different values (1, 3, 4 and 6). 35 different scores were possible at a single throw, the lowest throw, both in Greece and Rome, was the Dog, the highest in Rome was Venus.
