A single plate (probably the fourth of an original set of five), inscribed on both faces. All other components of the set are lost, and only photographs survive of this plate. The physical dimensions are estimated on the assumption that the width of the plate is similar to that of cognate plates. The plate on the photograph is 14.2 by 7.9 cm, and the hole (0.75 cm in diameter) is 3.3 cm from the left edge.
7.6cm width x 8.2cm height x0.6cm depth
Notes and provenance
The plate, the fourth of a five plate charter, was discovered whilst digging for manganese in the area. It is not know where the donated areas are or where the plate was issued. According to Shastri, Mirashi believes that the plate dates to the time of Pravarasena II due to similarities with known charters of this time, but Shastri argues that these similarieties can also be seen in other charters of different rulers and so cannot be considered to be certain.
