The South Asia Inscriptions Database
Records: 215

Dimensions estimated from plate size. 14 lines on the first plate, 15 on the second. Well preserved except for a hole around the middle of the last line of the second plate.

Inscribed all over the extant surface, which contains the beginnings of three lines. The first line is probably the first line of the original inscription.

Inscribed all over the front face of the reassembled slab, consisting of five entire lines and traces of the top of a sixth (not reported by Agrawala). The beginning of the first line (which is almost certainly the first line of the original inscription) is lost and any number of subsequent lines may have been present after the sixth.

Inscribed all over the right-hand side of the reassembled slab. The first 2-3 characters of five lines are extant, and there are traces of the top of a sixth line (not reported by Agrawala). There may have been any number of additional lines both before the first and after the sixth line.

The inscription is on the eastern side of the smooth upper part of the base.

8 lines of text, fully preserved. Campus size estimated from photo.

9 lines, in a good state of preservation.

Writing probably covers the entire surface of the stone.

The inscription is on the octagonal section; this first inscription seems to have occupied four faces. Dimensions are estimated on the basis of the drawing of the pillar and the dimensions of the two inscriptions (%I-0047 and %I-0048) which together measure 40 by 104 cm.

The inscription is on the octagonal section; this second inscription is below the first, separated by a double horizontal line extending from the left edge of the extant portion to the right margin of the present inscription. The inscription probably occupied only three of the faces covered by the first inscription. An unknown number of lines are lost at the end. Dimensions are estimated on the basis of the drawing of the pillar and the dimensions of the two inscriptions (%I-0047 and %I-0048) which together measure 40 by 104 cm.

The inscription of 13 lines is on the eastern side of the pillar. Agrawala (1983:26) provides a third dimension (4.5 cm), which is presumably the depth of a recessed panel on the column.

The inscription is on the eastern side of the pillar. It is in 16 lines, as opposed to 13 in the other specimen. Dimensions are not available. Bhandarkar (1981:268) gives the beginnings of the legible lines and notes that this duplicate has clarified some uncertain readings in the primary inscription.
