Historical note:

Roman Cursive refers to the type of writing made by using a stylus, chalk or charcoal to create cursive letter forms, as opposed to the formal inscriptional Square Capitals written or carved with a brush or chisel. The earliest examples come from graffiti in Pompeii and Herculaneum in the 1st Century AD, and on wooden tablets (Vindolanda, Britain) and pot sherds (Mons Claudanius, Egypt) from the 2nd Century. This early cursive writing represented the ordinary, general purpose hand used by Romans for at least the first three centuries AD (and maybe before then).
