History details
Discovered in or shortly before 1908 in Ghāgrāhāti, close to Piñjurī (near Koṭālīpāḍā, 22.986824, 90.021881) by a farmer. Found in the ground at a depth of 25 cm. Bloch studied the original in 1908; probably so did R. D. Banerji later on, and the plate was exhibited in Lucknow in 1909. The plates were apparently in the possession of H. E. Stapleton (#Banerji_1911:289).
