Roman tablets with curses

Roman plaques with curses, made of lead. In total, 130 different plaques were discovered. The objects are dated from II-IV century CE. The tablets were rolled up and thrown into the source, where it was believed that the shrine of the goddess Sulis Minerva (Bath, England) was located.

The goddess was seen as both a mother goddess; guardian of science, wisdom and craftsmanship, as well as the performer of all bad requests to other people.
