The others... it sure seems to be a magical thing. Makes you wonder how they used em. (The casting of a circle sounds ackwardly contemporary - I doubt that to be this ancient.)


I read somewhere that it was a magical knife. The image on the top of the page clearly shows one "pointy" side.
medicine and magic were interwoven. Maybe it was used to perform magical healing. Excising something from your body through magic would need a magical "knife" ? (so, not really menat to cut the physical body)

Maybe stab a demon with it? Cool
