The World’s Oldest D20 Is Really, Really Old

Lots of gamers hold on to their dice for years and have collections that date back to grade school, but none of them are likely to have one as old as this D20. It was recently acquired by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and dates to the Ptolemaic Period between 304-30 BC. It was originally in the collection of Reverend Chauncey Murch who got it sometime between 1883 and 1906 as a missionary in Egypt. Can you imagine breaking this out for your next game of DnD?
