Description

This double-leaf wax writing tablet is constructed from two leather-hinged halves of wood inset with soft wax. Included is a brass stylus with a writing tip and a flat, spatula-like erasing head. Tablets such as these were common in the ancient and medieval world for keeping mercantile or military inventories, or for conducting the tallying and arithmetic of accounting in these two spheres. They were also commonly used by scribes and monks, who would draft their words before committing them to precious papyrus or vellum.
