Two plates, each inscribed on one face only. Dimensions above are for one plate. The plates are smooth, without thickening or raising at the rims. They are thin and deeply engraved, hence their backs were not suitable for writing on. Perforated about the middle of the upper side and connected by a ring through the hole.
