Cursed in Kent

Poor Sacratus, Constitutus and Memorianus must have had a bad time in Roman Kent, England. Their names were found among 11 others on a lead "curse tablet" discovered recently by the Maidstone Area Archaeological Group.

The 1mm thick tablet was of a type believed to have been used by Romans to "cast spells on people accused of theft and other misdeeds."  The artifact which dates to around the 3rd century CE was taken to Oxford University for identification.
