Lead with inscription

Lead sheet with Iberian inscription. 

Lead sheet with Iberian inscription. 

Lead sheet in a roughly rectangular shape measuring 7.8 x 4.8-3.8 x 0.1 cm, with a perforation in one of the corners and a fold on one end. What is conserved corresponds to the right-hand part of the original base and has remains of inscriptions on both sides. Although the condition of the writing makes it difficult to explore linguistic questions related to it, given the impossibility of understanding Iberian writing, it can be added to the body of artefacts referring to quantities and numerals, so that it could easily be understood as a kind of commercial letter.
