  1. 3 lines of writing. No description in Agrawala.

A broken sandstone image of which only the pedestal and the feet remain, and which appears to be a standing Buddha. Dimensions are of the extant portion (and I'm not sure which figure goes for which dimension as neither Srivastava nor Agrawala specify this). The proper right portion of the pedestal is broken away.

Inscriptions
  1. Five lines of text; chipping of the upper edge has damaged parts of the first two lines. The characters of the first line are a bit smaller to accommodate the invocation siddham plus an entire verse half. Traces of feet can be discerned on the upper surface, which implies that the pratimācatuṣṭaya referred to an inscription was not a single quadruple image but four separate images.

A sculpture depicting "a large sitting Jina" (Bhandarkar 1981:272).

Inscriptions
  1. The inscription is on the pedestal of the image.

The top and bottom sections are four-faced, while the middle is octagonal. One face of the top and bottom and five faces of the middle are well dressed, the rest are rough, hence Bhandarkar's reasonable assumption that it was a pilaster built into a wall rather than a free-standing pillar.

Inscriptions
  1. The inscription is on the five dressed faces of the central section of the pilaster, readable in horizontal lines across faces (with 3-4 akṣaras on each face) rather than as separate columns. The third of the five faces is badly abraded. Bhandarkar (1981:234-235) theorises that the pilaster was already built in (perhaps into the shrine mentioned in the inscription) when the text was incised, and he takes the end of the inscription to be the first half of an āryā verse, for the second half of which there was no room available.

A stone fragment with the top proper right corner broken away. The thickness of the stone is not stated.
