Summary

Description
English: Diagram of a tabula game played in 480 circa by Eastern Roman Emperor Zeno. The game, whose mechanics is similar to backgammon, is noteworthy because the Emperor had a very unlucky result and the situation was recorded in an epigram by Agathias. Zeno drew 2, 5 and 6 on his dices, and he was forced to move one piece from XX to XXII, one from XVIIII to XXIIII and one from X to XVI (Robert Charles Bell, Board and table games from many civilizations, Courier Dover Publications, 1979, ISBN 0486238555, pp. 33-35).
