@davidwjgill @Durotrigesdig There are similar (but less visually striking) sets of pieces in Bologna Archaeological Museum, and also in Ancona. It would appear to be a four player game (6 pieces per player). It could be a strategy game, or it could be a race game. See Schädler (2019) dx.doi.org/10.47245/archi…

This marvelous chess set is from Russia, 1760-1770s; made of bone, wood and horn by Osip Dudin.

Knigths and Rooks are otherwordly... and the pieces' faded paint makes the whole set almost eerie...

This chess piece is King, dated 8th–10th century, from Western Islamic Lands, made of Jet (or lignite?)

A wonderful piece, following the throne-like shape of early Islamic abstraction, with very rich decorative circle motifs.
