Roman Bone Stylus for writing on a wax tablet

In Roman antiquity, the Romans wrote on wax tablets to write things down or to write a message or a letter. The Romans used the so-called stylus, Latin for stylus, to scratch into the wax on the tablets. The pointed Roman writing instrument was usually made of very hard, stable material, such as iron, bronze, ivory, but also made of bone and, in the case of wealthy Romans, certainly made of silver or gold!
