<p>The stone was re-cut sometime after being engraved. It seems to have been a section of a square pillar split lengthwise into four. The present object is inscribed on both the faces that were originally on the outside of the pillar. Dimensions above are estimates based on the inscription campus data given in Fleet and Agrawala. #ASIR_10:10 describes the object as two fragments, which were apparently found together and may have been rejoined by restorers since then, hence they are treated as a single object here. The fracture appears as a horizontal line through line 8 of %IN00058 and between lines 7 and 8 of %IN00059. These fragments may or may not originate from the same column as %OB00010; since no previous editor mentions the possibility in spite of the obvious relatedness of the inscriptions, there may be some trivial but unrecorded factor, such as a difference in the material, that precludes it.</p>
