Roman wax tablet found at dig site

archaeology:

Archaeologists have unearthed a stylus wax tablet at the site of a Roman fort on Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland.

Believed to be from 105-120AD, the tablet was found just 12in (30cm) from a wooden toilet seat discovered at the same location last month.

The tablet is one of 12 found at Vindolanda this year and one of seven found from the same building level.

Director of excavations, Dr Andrew Birley, said he was “looking forward” to reading the tablet’s text.

The site, near Hexham, has previously revealed gold and silver coins and other artefacts of the Roman army.

And the colourized version!  In true classical fashion, I had the colours saturated as much as was feasible; in true me fashion, I absent-mindedly forgot to go over the pencil sketch with ink until I was half-way finished with the colours.  Ah well.
And for the curious: that is Marcus Aurelius who’s just gotten a concussion, yes.  It is always hilarious when a philosopher is ordered to learn, and that is a fact.

Desipienter!
