The casting of plaques was a simple and inexpensive way to produce relief images, since numerous plaques could be made from a single mould. They have been excavated in temples as well as in household shrines and private homes. Their subject matter varies widely, including religious images, mythological and erotic scenes, and representations of rulers and gods.
