Mmh, maybe I'm completely mistaken, but the saying goes 'alea iacta est', doesn't it? So the subject is plural there while the verb is singular. If so, is there a rule as to when a subject (n., pl.) has to have a verb the ending of which actually is the singular form?
Oh, thank you. Since it's translated to German in the plural ("Die Würfel sind gefallen") I always assumed it's the plural of aleum - which apparently is an alternative form of the plural genitive and not the nominative singular. Well, better late than never I guess, only took me 20 years to learn the truth behind this :D
