The plate is not a common shape in clay since it was more likely to have been made of wood. Figured plates (more commonly black-figure) seem to have been made for religious dedications.
Der Teller ist keine übliche Gefäßform, die in der klassischen Zeit aus Ton hergestellt wurd, da die meisten wahrscheinlich aus Holz gefertigt wurden. Figürlich verzierte Teller (häufiger schwarzfigurig) dürften für religiöse Zwecke gemacht worden sein.
Το πινάκιο δεν ήταν ένα κοινό σχήμα της κεραμικής, και φαίνεται να κατασκευαζόταν συνήθως από ξύλο. Πινάκια με εικονιστική διακόσμηση (συνηθέστερα στον μελανόμορφο ρυθμό) φαίνεται πως χρησιμοποιούνταν ως αναθήματα.
