<p>A set of seven plates, the first and last inscribed only on the inner sides; the others on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims. The size of the plates differs slightly, but no individual figures are reported. The plates have a hole at the centre of one of the longer sides (top of recto and bottom of verso pages), through which they are connected by a ring. The seal is not soldered but hung separately on the ring. </p>

<p>A set of seven plates, the first and last inscribed only on the inner sides; the others on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims. The size of the plates differs slightly, but no individual figures are reported. The plates have a hole at the centre of one of the longer sides (top of recto and bottom of verso pages), through which they are connected by a ring. The seal is not soldered but hung separately on the ring. </p>
