http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pencil#History

The archetypal pencil may have been the stylus, which was a thin metal stick, often made from lead and used for scratching in papyrus, a form of early paper. They were used extensively by the ancient Egyptians and Romans. The word pencil comes from the Latin word pencillus which means "little tail".

Aren't you glad you're not getting all the government you pay for now?
