Strigilis

The Greeks, Estruscans and Romans had a special way to clean themselves after sport exercises and before the visit of the baths. They used a curved instrument, called strigilis, to cleanse oil, sometimes mixed with abrasives like sand, pumice stone or potash, and dirt from their perpired bodies.
