A single plate, the first of a set, though the remaining plates are probably not lost but were never inscribed. It is inscribed only on one side, presumably meant to be the verso after binding. Mirashi says it is the thinnest of all Vākāṭaka plates discovered so far, reporting its thickness at 1/20 inch.
