These RARE AND UNIQUE artifacts would be a wonderful center piece to any collection. The Roman Legions managed to conquer most of the known Western world, allowing the emperor to control one quarter of the people on the planet at the time. This vast amount of territory was controlled by one of the first modern armies, who dictum of standardization and high equipment quality made them the best-equipped soldiers of the ancient world. Compared to most other opponents, the Romans were heavily armored, heavily armed, and highly skilled at using their weapons and equipment. This SCALPEL is from the LATE CLASSIC ROMAN PERIOD: 1st - 3rd CENTURY AD The knife was the first tool to be developed. It is the most commonly used tool today. It is used in various professions; it is used in the manufacture of commodities; it is an essential part of many technologies; and it is used as an eating utensil. Evidence of knives used in medicine goes back as far as the Mesolithic period (the Middle Stone Age)—around 8000 BC, when flint knives were used as scrapers to cut through the skull (Fig. 1).1 It is presumed that the skull was penetrated to allow the escape of demons that caused headaches, melancholy, or epilepsy. Hippocrates was the first to describe the surgical knife. He used the word macairion, derived from machaira, an old Lacedaemonian sword, which had a broad cutting blade on a single edge and a sharp, straight point. Therefore, even in Hippocrates' time, the shape of the scalpel was much the same as it is today. The history of surgical knives follows the history of cutlery. In ancient Rome, cutlery was practiced by armorers, upon whom surgeons had to rely to make their instruments. With the growth of the empire, the people who had been conquered by the Romans acquired skill in the fabrication of knives. Cleaned and preserved...collectors item! GREAT!
