Dimensions for making a replica Roman dodecahedron (1)

Let us suppose somebody wants to make a replica of a Roman dodecahedron,
here a recipe. Consider the following image

Centered at the center of each face, draw a circle, which will be a hole. These circles  usually have different diameters. Print and cut the image.
If you want some figures, you can, for instance use the article at the following link:
Here I am reproducing a table.

Here we have not the exact potions of the holes, but we have the diameters of hole on the opposite faces.
According to the image of the dodecahedron, 1 is opposite 12, 2 opposite 11, 3 opposite 10, etc.
