Especially in the Roman period after Christ skippets were used to protect the seals on documents and leather bags with precious content. The bottom of the skippet is connected by a hinge with a cover. There are holes in the bottom and sides of the seal capsule. Through this, a string can be performed to tie the sealing capsule, for example, with a closed wax tablet and knot it inside the sealing capsule. Subsequently, the bottom of the sealing capsule, in which the knot is located, filled with sealing wax, stamped with a signet ring and closed the lid of the capsule. In this way, the seal was protected.
