What dinnerware did Jesus used?

A good number of people have heard of the story of the Last Supper. In the Christian Bible, The Last Supper is the final meal that Jesus shared with his apostles before his crucifixion.  It is mentioned in the Bible that, Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat it.” The Christian Bible doesn't mention the dinner plates used. However, we do know that the dinner took place in a large room, they had wine which was placed in a cup. However, the bread had to have been placed on some sort of plate.  Artists and interpreters have taken creative liberties over the centuries in their representations of the Last Supper, and the depictions often reflect the cultural and artistic styles of the time.  The depictions typically favor the culture of the artist.  How would you depict The Last Supper if you were asked to paint it?  Just food for thought.
