A set of five plates, two of which (here numbered Plates 4 and 5, %OB00162g and %OB00162h) carry no inscription at all. The first and last of the remaining three are inscribed only on the inner side, the second on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims. The hole for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally 3.2 cm from the edge.

A single plate belonging to a set of probably three, probably including two of %OB00146, %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.
