Bone, Horn & Antler
Raw materials for handles, chests and belts and much more.
In Roman antiquity, the Romans described growth signs to write down things or to write a message or a letter. With the so-called Stilus, Latin for Griffel, the Romans cracked in the wax of the plates. The pointed Roman writing instrument was usually made of very hard, sturdy material, such as of iron, bronze, ivory, but also of bones, and of wealthy Romans, certainly of silver or gold. You will find two wonderful, hand-made bones made of bone in the category Raw materials and useful items on these pages of the Roman shop.
