A single plate (probably the third of an original set of four or five), inscribed on both faces.  All other components of the set are lost. The shorter edges bulge, so the longer dimension is 19 cm in the centre, but only 18.4 cm at the edges. The plate has no rims.

A single plate belonging to a set of probably three, probably including two of %OB00145, %OB00147 and %OB00148. 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.
