No word on the dodecalicious

Of course, also recently rediscovered in Turky was Pluto's Gate. The cave was celebrated
as the portal to the underworld in Greco-Roman mythology and tradition. Now, when I tell

That is amazing! To think 4-siders were around back then. Can't help but wonder how each shape was used.

I agree with Bill, That is Amazing.
I, too, wonder how they were used.
