The South Asia Inscriptions Database
Records: 2

A single plate (probably the third of an original set of four or five), inscribed on both faces.  All other components of the set are lost. The shorter edges bulge, so the longer dimension is 19 cm in the centre, but only 18.4 cm at the edges. The plate has no rims.

A stone tablet, thickness not reported. The stone was reduced to its present side by chipping off the edges not long before 1940, to make the object more portable. The chipping has not damaged the inscription. Its original size is not recorded. #Altekar_1941-42 gives its height as 11 inches, which is probably wrong on the basis of the rubbing;  #Banerjee_1944 says the height is 9 inches.
