Rome Antony Caesar Playing Cards Rare Roman collectors 2 Decks
Ancient Rome was flush in rich colors, lavish outfits and historically influential characters. The ROME: Antony & Caesar pair of Decks focuses on the time periods of the First and Second Triumvirates of Rome's dramatic history. The First Triumvirate ended when Julius Caesar defeated Pompey the Great and became Dictator, before his assassination by members of the Senate. The Second Triumvirate ended when Octavian defeated Mark Antony & Cleopatra, and eventually became the first Emperor of Rome (and given the name Augustus).
The ROME Tuck Boxes have Red and Blue textured background images, and are accented with GOLD FOIL designs. Caesar's Tuck features an imperial Eagle and a customary Roman border design. Antony's Tuck features a majestic Lion and a border design with hints of Egyptian styling (symbolizing Antony's final years in Egypt, with Cleopatra). Both Tucks include the Roman banner, Laurel Wreath and SPQR elements on the Back. The Top of Caesar's Tuck has the words "ALEA IACTA EST and VENI VIDI VICI" - Latin for "The die is cast" and "I came, I saw, I conquered". The Top of Antony's Tuck has the words "TARUM ET CLAMA DIMIT CANIBUS QUATIT" - Latin for "Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war".

Quality workmanship throughout both decks....Texture, backings, and image portrayals excellent....Only one drawback preventing
full experience & enjoyment of theme: It would be nice to have a list of names identifying all picture cards - Can only identify two
or three other than the 2 "joker" cards [ Caesar & Augustus]...Should be able to identify & name each of the 24 picture cards in the
two decks....Need clarification for full appreciation.....Thanks
I love these! The amount of detail is amazing!
