<p>A single plate inscribed only on the recto, the last of a set. It probably has no raised rims (this is not reported explicitly). The hole for the binding ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally at an estimated 5.2 centimetres from the edge.</p>

<p>Found in Yavatmāl (20.388239,78.127731), Yavatmāl district, Maharashtra along with %OB00174. The plates were "rescued ... from a copper-smith ... just when they were about to go to the melting pot" (#Shastri_Gupta_1983b:78), so presumably they were originally found somewhere in the vicinity of Yavatmāl by locals. #Shastri_Gupta_1983b:78 seem to imply that the plates were found as a full set including the ring and seal, but this is uncertain. They also seem to take it for granted that the two extant plates belong to the same set, but this is also uncertain. The two plates are reported as being the same size, but on their facsimiles the binding hole seems to be positioned quite differently. For the sake of caution I record them as independent objects.</p>
