“Tabella, a billet or tablet, with which each citizen and judex voted in the comitia and courts of justice. In the comitia, if the business was the passing of a law, each citizen was provided with two tabellae, one inscribed V.R. “I vote for te law,” the other inscribed A. “I am te old law.” If the business was the election of a magistrate, each citizen was supplied with only one tablet, in which the names of the candidates were written, or the initials of their names; the voter then placed a mark against the one for whom he voted, whence puncta are spoken of in the sense of votes.” &mdash Smith; 1873
