Date comments
Intrinsic Date: 66 mārgaśīrṣa śukla (7?) (era: Harṣa). Basis of dating: intrinsic. The date is problematic; Cunningham read the year as 55, Bhagwanlal Indraji as 88, and Fleet as 66. All agree that it is in the Harṣa era. The number of the day is also disputed.

<p>The image was found in 1979-80 by Cunningham and/or Beglar in Shahpur (probably 25.093731, 85.672187), about 15 km southeast of Bihar Sharif. Fleet's agents could not find the image or obtain information about it in 1884. Its only facsimile in existence is the one published in #ASIR_15 (Plate 11), probably a pencil rubbing.</p>
