The J should be an i. Alea Iacta Est. Meaning " the die is cast." It is surprising no one noticed.

Not sure how accurate this source is, but an explanation on why some places say "j" and others "I"

It comes from "French" transcription of Latin, we spell Jacta but pronounce Iacta indeed (well, the few that ever pronounce it ;) )
