Basis of dating: conjecture, reign of Ādityasena. #Fleet_1888:211 believes this inscription is later than %IN00208 and %IN00208 because it speaks of Ādityasena as a paramount ruler while those do not

<p>The inscription is probably on a natural boulder or rock face. Beglar (as reported by Fleet) was unable to locate this inscription, but it is probably also near the flight of steps leading from the Pāpaharaṇī tank (24.832346, 87.035822) at the bottom of the hill to the hilltop tank. Hamilton says this inscription is lower down than the one on %OB00195. It is possible that the inscription Beglar found is a third specimen, not identical to either of those reported by Hamilton.</p>
