<p>A set of four plates, the first and last inscribed only on the inner side, the others on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims. The hole (1 cm in diameter) for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally 5.3 cm from the edge. The plates were linked by a ring, on which the seal was also hung by a copper band attached to the back of the seal. At the time they were studied, the rivet holding together the ends of the ring and the rivet attaching the seal to the band were lost, and all the elements were loose.</p>

<p>A set of four plates, the first and last inscribed only on the inner side, the others on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims. The hole (1 cm in diameter) for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally 5.3 cm from the edge. The plates were linked by a ring, on which the seal was also hung by a copper band attached to the back of the seal. At the time they were studied, the rivet holding together the ends of the ring and the rivet attaching the seal to the band were lost, and all the elements were loose.</p>
