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.

A single plate (probably the fourth of an original set of five), inscribed on both faces. All other components of the set are lost, and only photographs survive of this plate. The physical dimensions are estimated on the assumption that the width of the plate is similar to that of cognate plates.
