Blank antique papyrus scroll to design and write on
The scrolls in the Roman store - there are also other dimensions - are mounted on wooden rods made of real and solid, untreated beech with turned end pieces ready. This allows them to be stretched while writing and held securely while reading. Then the inscribed scrolls of ancient papyrus are rolled back onto the wood. In ancient times, scrolls were written on with red (based on ochre) or black ink (made of soot and gum arabic). You can also find the matching writing utensil in a large selection on the pages of the Roman store under the category of antique stationery. For adequate storage, the scrolls end up in the specially handmade decorative cista made of willow, which is also available in the Roman store.
Ancient scroll best described with the calamus!
Over one meter on 20 centimeters of papyrus offers them the ancient scroll for their individual text or for free design. Roman books were these scrolls on beechwood sticks. They were called scrolls or volume scrolls. The antique scrolls of the Roman store are handmade from real papyrus sheets in our own workshop, so that you can write your own antique or modern texts on them. It is best to use a goose feather or a writing tube (calamus) made of reed or more valuable materials - available in the store.
A text written on papyrus scroll is a book for eternity
How durable papyrus (lat. cyperus papyrus = papyrus dew) is, proves for example a tradition from the 2nd century A.D. A physician named Galenos reported that he had read more than 300 years old scrolls. Modern dating methods of archaeology confirmed this!
