Hail Caesar!!! Rich and vibrant Playing Cards with an ANCIENT ROMAN theme. Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, Cleopatra.....

The ROME: Antony and Caesar pair of Decks are printed by Legends Playing Cards Co. and focus on the time periods of the First and Second Triumvirates of Rome's 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".

The Back Cards for the Antony and Caesar Decks are truly two of the most unique Back Cards in the world of Playing Cards! The imagery for the Back Cards depict the deaths of Julius Caesar (Red) and Mark Antony (Blue). They are inspired by two public domain paintings and recreated in my personal style ("The Death of Julius Caesar" and "Cleopatra Captured by Roman Soldiers after the Death of Mark Antony").

The Red and Blue center banners are at the inverse angle of the Face Cards' banners. This, and the feature of making all banner edges the same Black CMYK color value (30C, 30M, 30Y, 100K), allows for seamless designs on the edge of a full Deck. These features remove the chance of having any marked Cards from the edges.
