The man found a dice with a wrong face

A METAL discoverer has found a dice with the wrong side of the Romans 2,000 years ago to cheat when gambling.

Cleaner Stephen Pattison, 47, discovered the bronze artifact in a field during a pre-Christmas search with friends.

He thought it was a nut or bolt from farm machinery until he rubbed in some dirt and saw the dots.

History buff Stephen quickly realized it was a Roman dice – and when he tried it on, he realized it was dodgy because certain numbers appeared more often.

“The Romans used to play a game with it, which involved rolling a two or a six,” says Stephen.

“They tilted the dice a little bit so their chances of winning were increased.

“They’ve been massively gambling and whenever there’s money there’s always fraud!”

Married Stephen, of Thirsk, North Yorks, stumbled across the dice in Bagby in the county.

Stephen, who previously unearthed 13th-century silver coins, added: “It’s just a lovely find.”
