"Westerwanna" Dice

So-called "westerwanna" dice were used by Germanic people before the Migration Period (400-600 AD), and were named for the site of their initial discovery in Lower Saxony.
The dice are typically about 2 cm in length and marked with dot-and-ring figures and have markings 3 and 4 on the two small faces (probably as decoration).
Very rare. Is there anybody who has more information about these type of dice?
