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.

Actually three fragments, found together and assembled. Dimensions above are for the assembly, which is a squarish slab. One fragment comprises the (viewer's) left-hand side, a bit more than half of the slab. The smaller right-hand portion is broken again in two; the location of this fracture is not described by Agrawala and cannot be seen in his facsimile.

Inscriptions
  1. 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.

  2. 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.

A fragment of a rectangular slab, thickness not reported.

One of three fragments, found together and assembled; the assembly is itself a fragment of a pillar. This fragment is the upper part of the smaller right-hand portion of the slab. The location of the horizontal fracture is not described by Agrawala, but may be between lines 2 and 3 of the front inscription (%IN00068). The width and height of this fragment are estimated.
