Please move to correct subforum (can't find) or delete if necessary. Courtesy of Bloodbeard, who shared this piece of news:

A Roman throwing tower found at Vettweiß-Froitz-heim in Germany. The sides have been worked open, so that the players could see the dice rolling. Invented to prevent cheating. Text on the back reads: utere felix vivas ('use it and live as a lucky man').
 
4th century
 
On the front it says Pictos victos hostis deleta ludite securi ('The Picts have been defeated, the enemy destroyed, play carefree').
 
The text refers to a Roman victory over the Picts in Scotland, north of Roman Britannia.
