Hello! I bought this item from an Auction, together with some lovely old tokens, and there was a note saying 4 Rare Plaster Moulds. ( They are four in total). Any advice, please, on what they are or value?

Could it be a Rome (mid-15th century), Apollo, Marsyas and Olympus, oval bronze plaquette? ( by Lorenzo Medici)

Nope.
Medici and Rome don't go together.

But the composition fits the description.

OK, I can understand Rome and Florence having been conflated.

Here are two examples of the real deal, in the National Gallery (U.S.):
This one from Florence

This one from Rome:

Yours doesn;t look like either.
Maybe an item from a museum gift shop?

Sorry, I meant Florence. Probably it's a copy after Apollo, Marsyas and Olympus, plaquette, cast in cold bronze.
Thank you.
