A monolithic column. The bottom section is 1 metre square and 135 cm high. Fleet thinks this was its original base, buried in earth, since it has no sockets to indicate that it was attached to any other masonry elements.

Dimensions above are estimated from campus size on the basis of the estampage.

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.
