DEFINITIONS OF DICE

So far ... the definitions just prove that popular reference materials are not up to date ...

8 sided dice have been being manufactured since 1881 EXAMPLE
12 sided dice have been around since ancient times EXAMPLE
20 sided dice have been around since ancient times as well EXAMPLE 1  EXAMPLE 2

My definition is:

A unmounted solid object
with indicia (spots, numbers, letters, symbols, pictures etc)
on the extension member facets (faces or sides)
that is cast, rolled or spun or otherwise agitated
with the purpose of producing a random indication of one of the extension member facets
