According to a report in The Daily Mail , Roly Keating, chief executive of the British Library, said “the homework shows two lines of Greek carved into the wax with a stylus by a child believed to be eight or nine.” He added "This is a child's homework, a primary school kid in the second century AD in Egypt, and their writing is still on this little tablet, which is about the size of an iPad mini.”
