Roman curse tablet found in England

Only six of the 14 names are legible. The Roman names of Sacratus, Constitutus, Constan and Memorianus can be seen.
Dr Tomlin said the eight other names are incomplete, but further cleaning and testing could lead to them being transcribed.
He added: “If this is a curse tablet, which it seems to be, it is presumably a product of its local community – so it is a reasonable guess that the persons named on it lived there.”
