Date comments
Intrinsic Date: 524 (era: Mālava). Basis of dating: intrinsic. Although the year is stated to be expired (vyatīte, l. 11), there is no specific date, only a description of the spring. Assuming a caitrādi pūrṇimānta year, the inscription may have been made in late spring in CE 467 (when 524 years had just expired), or in early spring in CE 468 (when 524 years had expired almost a year ago).
