Still other sources say the year was 1874. Whichever version is correct, Homer bought out Shakespeare's interest and operated Laughlin Brothers Pottery until 1896 when the company was incorporated.

From references in Homer and other ancient texts we can find out that gambling games have been used widely in ancient Greece. Dice games, head and tails, and other games based on ‘luck’ have always been played by different groups.  Special places even existed where people passionate about gambling would go to play. However, like the casinos of today, those places carried a bad reputation and it was considered shameful for someone to go there. People would lose fortunes in gambling, exactly in the same way that we do today. However in ancient Greece gamblers had the support of a couple of Gods - Hermes and Pan. Even the Gods were said to have played a game or two – in Greek mythology, Zeus, Hades and Poseidon played ‘throw the dice’ in order to split the Universe between them.
