Archaeological excavations in Jerusalem don’t cease to bring the Bible alive! Here are a couple of 2000 year old stone dice from the 1st century AD when the Jewish Holy Temple, originally built by king Solomon, was still standing- before the Romans burned it down. These may be the very kind used by the Roman soldiers who cast dice to see who would get the clothes of Jesus after he was crucified. Biblical reference: “After they had crucified him, they [the Roman soldiers] determined who would get his clothes by throwing dice for them (Mt 27:35 King James)
