Roman Wax Tablet


Roman Wax Tablets/Tabulae/Diptychs were used for all forms of writing where the text was to be of no great length. The tablets were made often of wood (though sometimes of ivory) and had a hollowed out section into which was poured molten wax, which could then when hardened, be written upon with a metal or bone stylus. The text could then be erased using the flat end of the stylus and then rewritten upon. This form of tablet was commonly used to prepare political speeches, poems and so forth. Some more elaborate versions had multiple wooden pages. The pages of ours are bound with leather. Some Diptychs had a hole on the side opposite the hinge that would allow a string to be inserted and a seal applied. Examples were found at Vindolander at Hadrian's wall in northern England and images can still be seen today in the frescoes of Pompeii in the famous portrait of Terentius Neo and his wife...his wife holds a "Diptych" with a stylus to her mouth while he holds a rolled scroll.
