Bronze tweezers, Roman, 199 BCE-500 CE
Tweezers can be used as a surgical instrument to remove foreign bodies from inside the body or to hold muscles, arteries and veins out of the way during surgery. Tweezers are also used to pluck out unwanted hairs. Given the delicate nature of this example, it is likely to have been used for the latter.
