A bronze horse bit in the Burrell Collection, Scotland (photographed by your humble correspondent).
Note that there is no gap or join in the rings which link the left and right cheeks; the caster poured one side then made the mould for the other around it.

I am not certain that any society used this before the sixteenth century, although I have heard a story that it was invented in 14th century England to deal with the problem of two successive kings called “Edward, son of Edward” (if a document bore the date “the fifteenth day of April in the third year of King Edward son of Edward” was it written under the Edward who was losing Scotland or the Edward who was going to pick a fight with France?
) I certainly don’t think that any ancient society practiced this, and it makes it difficult for modern historians to deal with all the Artaxerxeses and Ptolemies (the Aramaic documents from Bactria, for example, just give the king’s throne name so could date to several different reigns).
