Hints & Hooks: The Ring of Pilate

A few days ago the inscription on a ring found in the Herodion, the fortress near Bethlehem in the places of the life and death of Jesus of Nazareth, has been deciphered. According to the archaeologists, it's the Ring of Pontius Pilate, the most famous of the prefects of Judea, given his involvement in the Crucifixion.

The artifact is a bronze seal, and someone already speculate that it was worn at the very moment of the death sentence for Jesus.

To find out more, you can consult the many articles that are appearing in these days on the subject.

But how to insert this ring in Lex Arcana?

Perhaps the few and missing Christians of the V century are looking for the artefact for its symbolic value. Or maybe the seal was designed to open a secret door of the Herodion, in which the most important relics of their faith would be kept: the Spear of Destiny, the Crown of Thorns or something much more unbelievable...

Playing Lex Arcana in a museum...

...is not impossible, after all!

The union between popularization, history and teaching often generates interesting situations and ideas. From this point of view, many people think that Lex Arcana would be a perfect game to be presented in a museum, and someone has already done it!

This picture comes from the Gallo-Roman Museum of Fourvière, in Lyon, where Sébastien Vicard has organized a wonderful session!

If you can do similar things too, send us your photos: we will share them with pleasure!

For this time we have done. Remember our Backerkit shop is open! If you want the Acta to talk about something special, if you have doubts or questions about Lex Arcana, or if you want to send us some contribution, just let us know!​

Ave atque Vale!
