Ancient Writing Set in the Style of Augustus!

A little known fact is that all Roman children, even girls and slaves, went to school. So, all of them learned the basic skills, including writing and reading. But how exactly did they learn how to write? Primarily with wax tablets! Those writing devices could be used several times and therefore made for a cheap and practical alternative to papyrus. Nevertheless, the children of richer Romans usually learned how to write with the papyri sheets.

Everything is included!

This set includes everything a real Roman student would have needed to be prepared for school:

  • Black ink
  • A calamus (Roman equivalent of a pen)
  • Papyrus scroll (60 x 20 cm)
  • Double wax tablet
  • A quill
  • A replica of an authentic Roman coin (showing Augustus)
  • A copy of ancient Roman cursive for learning purposes

Furthermore, this product was entirely handmade in Germany. Only the papyrus comes straight from Egypt. Hence, you can be assured of the high quality and the overall beauty of this neat writing set.
