TWO ROMAN BRONZE STRIGILS
circa 1st-2nd century a.d.
Both solid cast with L-shaped curving blades, their exteriors ornamented with a pointed petal in shallow relief, one with a wide blade, the rectangular handle folded back upon itself, the end fitting into a knotch at the back of the blade, the front of the handle with two "dog bone"-shaped stamps arranged in a T, perhaps the maker's mark, the other with a thin blade and a solid rectangular handle, with similar but smaller and shallower stamps on the front of the handle
9 in. (22.9 cm) long for the largest (2)
