The Romans had a very reusable way of writing notes down, especially while on campaign. They had items like this Roman Wax Tablet with Bone Stylus. This tablet has two wooden boards. Also, two leather strips tie the boards together. On the inside, there are rounded rectangular sections on each side filled with black wax. The tablet comes with a stylus made of bone. The stylus has a point on one end and a flat section. You use the point of the stylus for writing while using the flat end for smoothing out the wax. Smoothing out the wax helps to erase the writing. This tablet and stylus is great not only for reenacting but also for giving as a gift to a fan of history.
This item is handmade, therefore, it may vary slightly from what is shown above.
