Both tools have dull, flat ends against which a hammer or
stonemason's hammer struck. The chisel was held at an slight tilt
to work on stone.
The flat chisel was used to create profiles,edges and surfaces. Letters could also be made on surfaces that had been smoothed out.
The long pointed iron was used for many purposes, for example as a lever for stone-breaking.
Both tools came from the cohort fort Miltenberg-Altstadt.
