Here they are:

An ancient clay tablet inscribed with cuneiform script, a type of writing once common in the Middle East, foundeds in southeastern Turkey in October 2009.

And a Roman “curse tablet” from Leicester, England, found near the ruins of a townhouse dating from the second century A.D., with a lead sheet bearing an inscription that asks a god to kill the thief who stole a man’s cloak.
