Ligula, Roman Spoon with Oval Bowl, Brass

Ancient Roman spoons are commonly classified in two main types:
While the cochlearium (pl. cochlearia) had a smaller bowl (also called head) and a straight handle tapering into a sharp point, the larger, heavier ligula (pl. ligulae) featured a rather generously sized, often oval bowl and a handle with rounded end or finial.

Archaeologists believe that ligulae may have been used at times as eating spoons, but were rather primarily designed to plate and serve food. Numerous finds have furnished evidence that these serving spoons were used over many centuries. Various excavations unearthed a broad range of specimens of many different shape variations, crafted from a wide variety of materials - from plain to elaborate pieces made of wood, bone or metal. As some silver and bronze examples were found as grave goods, it is assumed that these finer versions were objects of prestige rather that everyday utensils.

This reproduction of a ligula with deep, almond-shaped bowl (oval with slightly pointed tip) is made of brass. It has a stepped bowl/handle transition and the just barely tapered handle terminates in a small ball knop. This nice piece of Roman cutlery lends itself perfectly for Living History purposes and is a great addition to any Roman reenactor's equipment.
