Seller: elagabalium (503) 96%, Location: Port Saxon, NS, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 182372067501 TEMPLATE MASTER GUARANTEED GENUINE ANCIENT ROMAN PHYSICIAN'S ZOOMORPHIC BRONZE CYATHISCOMELE Ca. 43 - 400 CE “For the Best Legions, the Best Surgeons” This genuine antiquity was recovered in the UK near Brading, on the Isle of Wight, Hants. It was the Emperor Augustus, 63 BCE - 43 CE, who first designated a mandatory physician to accompany each Roman Legion as a matter of policy. It is fascinating to think who used this item, and who it was used upon. This is a GENUINE ANTIQUITY GUARANTEED. The top portion of this artifact was crafted in an interesting zoomorphic design in the shape of a bird, and was used as a sound. The bottom portion was used to mix salves and ointments. As you can see from the pictures it is about 6 inches long and the bird is about 2 inches wide. This will make a great addition to your collection as well as a great conversation piece. The ancient Romans had a motto, "For the best legions, the best surgeons". Indeed, surgery and medicine had a long and important tradition in Roman society. It was the emperor Augustus who first mandated as a rule in law that a physician would accompany each Roman legion. Medical instruments were professionally manufactured in factories in ancient Roman times, and many of their instruments are very similar to ones that are still used today. Upon the discovery of the ancient city of Pompeii, archaeologists found a large package of surgical instruments in a building which they believe may have been a surgical instrument supplier.
