An oval seal; the above dimensions assume (as Fleet did) that the lithograph in #Wilson_1836 is a 1:1 copy. The upper part, about one third, shows a bull decorated with a garland and walking to the proper right; there is an umbrella above it. In front of the bull walks a man carrying an axe and a standard with a cakra on top; his face is turned back toward the bull.

The pillars were originally erected as two pairs; members of each pair are about 7.5 metres from one another, while the distance between the pairs is about 23 metres. It is not clear whether Altekar discovered the foundation of the lost fourth pillar, or if he merely thinks there were originally two pairs. Altekar does not specify which pillar bears which inscription.
