<p>A set of four plates, the first and last inscribed only on the inner sides; the others on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims. The hole (0.6 cm in diameter) for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally 3 centimetres from the edge. The connecting ring is extant (not included as a separate item here, since no description of it is available), but the seal is lost. The weight is reported in #Mirashi_1963:93 as 47.5 tolās (554 grams) for the plates and the ring together, but this figure is unlikely. For comparison, %OB00161 (a single plate on which Mirashi specifically remarks that it is the thinnest Vākāṭaka plate known) weighs 227 grams. Since Mirashi edited the inscription from facsimiles, while the original editors Deshpande and Mahajan worked from photographs and report no weight, the figure must be either Mirashi's careless assumption or an erroneous report from an informant. In fact, the dimensions of the plates are also uncetain, as the original editors were only "given to understand that the photographs are equal to the size of the original plates" (#Deshpande_Mahajan_1939:455).</p>

First reported and edited (with eye copy, transcript and translation) in #BhauDaji_1863a:56-58. Re-edited by Bhagwanlal Indraji (without facsimile) in #Burgess_Indraji_1881:69-73; by Bühler (with a facsimile (Plate 57) made by Indraji and "somewhat worked up by hand" [according to #Mirashi_1963:103]) in #Burgess_1883:124-128, by Mirashi (with discussion and new estampage) in Mirashi_Mahajan_1941-42:142-147, in #Mirashi_1941 and (finally) in #Mirashi_1963. Discussed in #Mirashi_1940a (also published, without facsimile, as #Mirashi_1940b), #Biswas_1940-41, #Shastri_1997:41-44. Metrical issues discussed in #Kielhorn_1899, #Kielhorn_1905-06:27, #Venkarasubbiah_1936a, #Venkatasubbiah_1936b.

<p>A set of four plates, the first and last inscribed only on the inner sides; the others on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims. The hole (0.6 cm in diameter) for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally 3 centimetres from the edge. The connecting ring is extant (not included as a separate item here, since no description of it is available), but the seal is lost. The weight is reported in #Mirashi_1963:93 as 47.5 tolās (554 grams) for the plates and the ring together, but this figure is unlikely. For comparison, %OB00161 (a single plate on which Mirashi specifically remarks that it is the thinnest Vākāṭaka plate known) weighs 227 grams. Since Mirashi edited the inscription from facsimiles, while the original editors Deshpande and Mahajan worked from photographs and report no weight, the figure must be either Mirashi's careless assumption or an erroneous report from an informant. In fact, the dimensions of the plates are also uncetain, as the original editors were only "given to understand that the photographs are equal to the size of the original plates" (#Deshpande_Mahajan_1939:455).</p>

<p>Discovered by a paṇḍit in Vāśim (Washim, Basim; 20.099787,77.148743); exact location and circumstances not reported. The plates apparently remained in the paṇḍit's possession, or at least this is what #Mirashi_1963:93 says; however, the original editors (#Deshpande_Mahajan_1939:455) say they had never actually handled the plates and they were not in the possession of this pandit, but "with a gentleman from the mofussil village near about Bāsim".</p>

<p>A set of four plates, the first and last inscribed only on the inner sides; the others on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims. The hole (0.6 cm in diameter) for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally 3 centimetres from the edge. The connecting ring is extant (not included as a separate item here, since no description of it is available), but the seal is lost. The weight is reported in #Mirashi_1963:93 as 47.5 tolās (554 grams) for the plates and the ring together, but this figure is unlikely. For comparison, %OB00161 (a single plate on which Mirashi specifically remarks that it is the thinnest Vākāṭaka plate known) weighs 227 grams. Since Mirashi edited the inscription from facsimiles, while the original editors Deshpande and Mahajan worked from photographs and report no weight, the figure must be either Mirashi's careless assumption or an erroneous report from an informant. In fact, the dimensions of the plates are also uncetain, as the original editors were only "given to understand that the photographs are equal to the size of the original plates" (#Deshpande_Mahajan_1939:455).</p>
