Two plates; one inscription (%I-0084) occupies one face of each plate, while another inscription (%I-0085) had been engraved on the other face of the first plate and beaten out completely so as to be all but illegible. This latter inscription was probably cancelled because of a copying error and the plate reused for the former inscription. Dimensions above are for the first plate; the width and…

The ring is about 0.5 cm thick and 3.8 cm in diameter. The seal is rectangular, 2.4 cm wide by 3.2 cm high. The seal is badly damaged by fire, but bears at the top, on a countersunk surface, an effigy of Garuḍa with outstretched wings (similar to that on the copper coins of Candragupta II). There is a much damaged legend of two lines below the image.

Three plates, each inscribed on one face only. Dimensions above are for either of the first two plates; the third plate ("evidently added as an afterthought, when it was found that the inscription could not be completed", Fleet_1888:101) is smaller, about 13 cm wide and 5 cm high. The plates are thin and deeply engraved, hence their backs were not suitable for writing on, as all details show…

Two plates, each inscribed on one side only. Dimensions above are for the first plate; the height of the second is about 0.3 cm less. The edges are thickened into rims and the inscription is well preserved in spite of corrosion. The plates are quite thin and the engraving is deep, showing through clearly on the back. The plates have a hole at the centre of the upper margin and have been cut from…

The ring is about 0.6 cm thick and 6.5 cm in diameter. It bears a rectangular seal, about 3.5 wide by 2.2 cm high. The seal has traces of an illegible legend on a countersunk surface. The ring and seal were extant when Fleet studied the plates in 1888, but one end of the ring had been detached from the seal (where the two ends had been welded into a socket) to allow separation of the plates.…
