I got asked a question about one of Alfonso's Cantigas de Santa Maria
manuscripts; apparently there's an illumination of a dice
player... has anyone heard of this? The descriptions in a music source
claim there aren't any illuminations at all in that manuscript, but
then again the music types are most interested in the illumniations of
pairs of musicians in another of the Cantigas manuscripts.

The guy who asked the question is sure it wasn't the games manuscript.
