In the Classical and Medieval world these double-leaved ‘’diptych’’ wax tablets had a variety of uses; scribes would use them to write a rough draft of their text before copying it to onto the expensive papyrus scroll. They were also a handy, writable work space for working out math problems or keeping an inventory. Many such tablets have been found around Hadrian’s Wall and were invaluable to the Roman garrison for keeping records of supplies, manpower and other logistics.
