Our Roman Writing Tablet & Stylus Set is based on an authentic period design from the days of the Roman Empire. Romans used to write notes with a pointed bronze "stylus" scratching them in wax. They had tablets from hollowed out wood and hardened beeswax inside. These tablets come in pairs and can be folded down like a diptychon. To write another message, notes were erased with the flat end of the tool the Romans carried with them.
