Luzagas Bronze Plate

In the late 19th century, a bronze plate measuring 16×15 centimeters was found at Luzaga, in the Guadalajara province of Spain. It contained an inscription of 123 celtiberian characters (both alphabetic and syllabic) comprising 8 lines. Unfortunately, the plate has since been lost, but not before a drawing was made, which is reproduced here.
