<p>A single plate belonging to a set of probably three, probably including two of %OB00145, %OB00146 and %OB00148. A hole 1.3 cm in diameter, about 5 cm from the centre of the left-hand edge, served for a ring to bind the plate together with its siblings. The ring and the presumably attached seal are lost. The plate seems to be a palimpsest, with an earlier inscription in the same script beaten flat before incising the present inscription.</p>

<p>Brought to Mirashi's attention in 1938, when they were in the possession of a resident of Belorā. (Probably 21.2394124, 78.0760896; there are several other Beloras in the vicinity, but this is the one that best meets Mirashi's statement that the place is in Ārvī tahsil, about 6 miles south by east of Morsi, on the left bank of the Wardha river.) Mirashi apparently studied the plates in the original, after which they may have been returned to the owner. It is not known whether they had been handed down in the owner's family or found recently.</p>
