This artifact is a mathematical tool from the Age Of Kings.
It allowed noble class wise men to solve complex mathematical problems with incredible speed.
I vanquished such a king myself with a cheap plastic programmable
scientific calculator in the 90's. It was not
an honourable duel nor a sporting one, the outcome was never in doubt. It was the victory
of the gunfighter over the swordsman. It was one of the few
that I fought and regretted winning.
If I ever get gumption in my life again, I may make it my mission to learn how
to use one of these.
This is an ancient interrogation device that would be used
to extract information from criminal and terrorist masterminds
like GI Joe and Johnny West.

Sadly the Age Of Queens has passed into history too.
I have no idea what that is...
My first pistol! I remember these!
I wore mine out!
