Greek term or phrase: πινάκιο
A (small) painting, or some kind of dish?

I'm looking at some correspondence: several letters refer to the same πινάκιο with the same reference number (or 'inventory number'). At first I thought it was a painting, but one letter gives a bit more detail: του πινακίου ... το οποίο φέρει στον πυθμένα παράσταση αιλουροειδούς

This gave me some doubts ... I'd be grateful for some clarification!
