The stone was re-cut sometime after being engraved. The front has traces of 11 lines of writing, with about 13 characters each. These are illegible, but appear to be in the same alphabet as the preserved inscriptions and seem distinct from those. The back face, where the original pillar or block seems to have been cut in half, is rough.

The stone was re-cut sometime after being engraved. It seems to have been a section of a square pillar split lengthwise into four. The present object is inscribed on both the faces that were originally on the outside of the pillar. Dimensions above are estimates based on the inscription campus data given in Fleet and Agrawala.
