<p>A set of four plates, the first inscribed only on the inner side, the others on both faces. They probably have no raised rims (this is not reported explicitly). The hole (diameter 1 cm) for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally 4 cm from the edge. The plates are linked by a ring, on which a seal is also hung, presumably by a copper band riveted to the back of the seal as in other Vākāṭaka seals.</p>

<p>A set of four plates, the first inscribed only on the inner side, the others on both faces. They probably have no raised rims (this is not reported explicitly). The hole (diameter 1 cm) for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally 4 cm from the edge. The plates are linked by a ring, on which a seal is also hung, presumably by a copper band riveted to the back of the seal as in other Vākāṭaka seals.</p>

<p>A set of four plates, the first inscribed only on the inner side, the others on both faces. They probably have no raised rims (this is not reported explicitly). The hole (diameter 1 cm) for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally 4 cm from the edge. The plates are linked by a ring, on which a seal is also hung, presumably by a copper band riveted to the back of the seal as in other Vākāṭaka seals.</p>
