The simple papyrus roll is also a book (formed by several glued papyrus sheets, which was used in Roman times for a long time), but with a wooden stick to roll the papyrus from the outside in.

It was usually written with red ink (ochre) or black ink (soot and arabic gum).

Many of these volume scrolls were found in the Villa dei Papiri in Italy (Pompeii).
