A slab of "a variety of basalt stone" (Gokhale_1967:1). Presently in three fragments. Since their history is shared, the fragments are not represented separately here.

Inscriptions

A smooth stone tablet. The back is divided into two sections by what seems to be either a spear with a curved handle, or a shepherd's crook. On each side, engraved in rough outline, there is a man on horseback facing the divider in the centre. The one on the proper right carries in his left hand a cāmara or a śaṅkha and there is a representation of the sun above him in the corner.

Inscriptions
  1. 25 lines in a very good state of preservation except for some characters obscured by an incrustation of lime and a few characters lost due to chipping at the ends of lines 1-3 and in a few other places.

A stone tablet, thickness not reported. The stone was reduced to its present side by chipping off the edges not long before 1940, to make the object more portable. The chipping has not damaged the inscription. Its original size is not recorded. #Altekar_1941-42 gives its height as 11 inches, which is probably wrong on the basis of the rubbing;  #Banerjee_1944 says the height is 9 inches.
