Caption: Cuneiform clay tablet and stylus. Reproduction of a typical cuneiform clay tablet showing a wooden stylus, (though often a reed was used) being used to write in cuneiform letters and numbers. The late-Assyrian form characters depicted here have been copied from a Neo-Babylonian stela (about 900-800BC) from Babylon, now in the British Museum.
