The slab is wider at one end and and narrower at the other (an oblong trapezoid). Its height/thickness is not reported. It bears a Mauryan-period inscription written lengthwise about the middle region of the top of the slab, and a Vākāṭaka inscription (%IN00155) running crosswise, beginning at the narrower end of the stone. Sometime in the course of its history it was converted into a liṅga base; the socket for the liṅga is next to the Vākāṭaka inscription (i.e. below its last line, if I understand correctly, but Mirashi's description is none too clear), and a roughly cut channel was "carried mercilessly" (#ASIR_07:124 ) through this inscription to drain off oblations.
According to Mirashi, the inscription records the construction of a temple (p. 2) whilst Shastri argues that the inscription records the construction of a ‘court of justice’. (Shastri, pp. 4-5)
Both the Aśokan period and Rudrasena inscriptions refer to the locality of the inscriptions as Chikumburi/Chikkamburi which suggests that the region flourished from at least the Aśokan era to the early Vākāṭaka rule. Shastri states that Hiralal has identified the site of Chikumburi/Chikkamburi with the village of Chikmārā. (Shastri, p. 5) Although the inscription is not dated, Mirashi states that this is the earliest known Vākāṭaka inscription (p. 3).
