Professionally cleaned. A bulla (from Latin bulla, "bubble, blob", plural bullae) is an inscribed clay or soft metal (such as lead or tin) or bitumen or wax token used in commercial and legal documentation as a form of identification and for tamper-proofing whatever is attached to it (or, in the historical form, contained in it). In their oldest attested form, as used in the ancient Near and Middle East of the 8th millennium BCE onwards, bullae were hollow ball-like clay envelopes that contained other smaller tokens that identified the quantity and types of goods being recorded. In this form, bullae represent one of the earliest forms of specialization in the ancient world, and likely required skill to create. From about the 4th millennium BCE onwards, as communications on papyrus and parchment became widespread, bullae evolved into simpler tokens that were attached to the documents with cord, and impressed with a unique sign to provide the same kind of authoritative identification and for tamper-proofing. Bullae are still occasionally attached to documents for these purposes. Beautiful ancient item. Size: About 30 mm. Please take a look at the photos.Weight: 3.7 g. Very good. Professionally cleaned.
