For all the dodecahedron fans, I had no idea

So what were they used for?


There was all sorts if mysticism tied to Dodecahedrons going back to Pythagoras. I find it harder to imagine a Master of such things not wanting one then going out of their way to have it.

They look like caltrops to me. Perhaps they didn’t want to permanently lame the valuable horses, just cause them to throw their riders.
