    So what do the symbols mean? They don’t look like numerals or hieroglyphs to me. Greek?

    apparently it’s from the Ptolemaic period…around same time as Cleopatra. So yeah, it’s an ancient “Greek” d20…that was found in Egypt.

    Yup, definitely greek letters. They are capitals so most of them look like latin letters but there’s Delta in the top left triangle and a Theta in the middle triangle of the lowest row.
