Medical, Scalpel Blade, Iron, c. 1st-3rd Cent

Iron; 58mm/6.0gm

Con/ As cast, the blade side is still extremely sharp

Seller's Note/ Small iron surgeon tools such as this scalpel blade, rarely if ever survive in the ground without turning into a simple mass of rust. The small tang on this blade leads us to surmise that it was not attached a copper alloy haft, but rather bone or horn...?
