With the Signaculum 79, you can now stamp your homemade loaves of bread just as the ancient Romans without cooking facilities did when they took bread dough to be baked at their local commercial or community bakery. Signacula (stamp seals) were commonly used for stamping bricks, pottery, and bread in ancient Rome. For bread-making, it is assumed that they were used to mark bread prior to baking to distinguish ownership in communal settings or to tell urban pistores, and other customers alike, which breads belonged to which people.
