Notes

: Original is made of marble and probably served as a board on which dice were thrown to cast horoscopes. Symbols of the planets form the outer circle, with Egyptian deities standing for star clusters called "decans" on the ring just inside. An inscription in Greek is on the black ribbon, and symbols of the Zodiac fill the center three bands.
