A single plate belonging to a set of probably three, probably including two of %OB00145, %OB00146 and %OB00147. A hole 1.3 cm in diameter, about 5 cm from the centre of the left-hand edge, served for a ring to bind the plate together with its siblings. The ring and the presumably attached seal are lost.
