Things That Look Like Board Games: What Is It?

One of my favorite features from BAR magazine (Biblical Archaelogy Review) is the "What Is It?" feature every issue?  I usually guess right, LOL!  Makes me feel smart (I'm a smart-ass anyway, but that's beside the point).

Mr. Don recently sent me an email with this image attached, and we've had some discussions about it since. 

I don't know where it is from or how old it is - despite nagging for the past 12 years; Mr. Don just doesn't find those sorts of things (like PROVENANCE) important :)

But I did find this very interesting discussion about the ancient "medium" here:  Info Tech of Ancient Democracy.  Enjoy!
