<p>A single plate without rim. A badly worn circular seal is attached to a projecting portion of the plate on the left side. The seal is lighter-coloured copper than the plate, 7 cm in diameter, with a rim surrounded by scrollwork projecting on both sides. The seal is in relief on a countersunk surface. The upper two thirds of the seal are occupied by a standing female figure (Lakṣmī?), with at least one kneeling attendant on both sides, and, above and to the sides, two elephants pouring water on her. The lower one third bears the seal inscription.</p>
