When archaeologists dug deeper into Queen Helena’s palace, there was undoubtedly a treasure trove of amazing ancient artifacts. One of their findings was a lead tablet with a Greek inscription that was later discovered to be a curse.

Historians guessed that the curse was written by a magician. Historians say that using a hammer and nail to make the inscription was a way to gain control over the person targeted. The text talks about a woman named Kyrilla, who called upon six different gods to cast a curse on a poor man named Iennys, with whom she was in a legal dispute.
