Wax tablet contract: a "closed book"

Seriously meant words can be perpetuated in this very special Roman wax tablet contract! With the pencil, latin stilus, can be written on the way for eternity with the very special Roman wax tablets in form of an contract. (lat. contractus). The wax tablets are lavishly worked tablets out of real wood with red seals and Roman prints of seal rings. The prettily written inner part is durably closed by shutting and lacing it.

  • Roman contract out of massive beech
  • wax tablet contract size 11,5x10,5 cm
  • opened circa 21x11,5 cm
  • sealed with real seal rings

By sealing it with the cord and the signatures of at least seven witnesses with ink on the outer part here you give away a real piece of eternity as a present: whether protestation of love, agreements or even a document. By the way in that way the concept of "closed book" was developed.

Ancient wax tablets in use

Wax tablets as well as the corresponding writing object, the pencil, in Antiquity were considered as professional standard equipment! The wax tablet could be established as optimal writing surface for simple notes or school tasks in Antiquity. The changing history of the Roman Empire probably would had have disappeared in the dark, if not until today maintained wax tablets had delivered proof about their culture. The use of the wax tablets exist until the 5th century BC. Many discoveries as well - just like this wax tablet - were equipped with seals for saving the delivery of the message on the wax tablet for the addressee only.

Give you document a special look

What an extraordinary form for contracts or documents! The seven seals contain the message inside the tablet. The original, true to which this wax tablet was made by hand. comes from Pompeii in Italy of the 1st century AD.
