#Bhattacharyya_1930:45 describes the plate as "of good copper" so I have shown it as copper, not as alloy. A single plate, inscribed on both sides, thick and without rim. It weighs 1700 grams with the seal. The surface is damaged in several places by hitting with a hard instrument; there is also corrosion damage.

Inscriptions
  1. 23 lines on the recto and 8 lines on the verso. Campus width is from #Bhattacharyya_1930:45; the height of the inscribed area is an estimate and applies to the recto face.

A stone slab with the left edge damaged. Part of its bottom side has also been cut away and lost after it was found but before it was delivered to the Calcutta museum, possibly to adjust its size for fixing in some other building. Dimensions above are for the extant fragment.

A slab of "a variety of basalt stone" (Gokhale_1967:1). Presently in three fragments. Since their history is shared, the fragments are not represented separately here.

A single plate, the first of a set of two or more, with the rest lost. Its surface is flat, without raised rims. Inscribed only on one side, presumably the verso. The hole for the ring was near the left-hand side (as viewed on the inscribed side), which is broken off so the remnant of the hole is now an indentation of the short side. The inscribed area was not damaged by this loss.

A single plate, wider ("higher") in the middle than at the edges. The edges are in some spots thicker than the surface, but the plate was probably not fashioned deliberately thicker around the edges. It is fairly thick (no figure available; weight ~500 gm), but the engraving is deep and shows through the back in many places.

Inscriptions
  1. Inscribed on one side only. Campus size estimated on the basis of photo.

A single plate, the first of a set, inscribed only on the verso. Its surface is flat, without raised rims. The hole for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally about a third of the way in from the left edge. Its dimensions are nowhere reported, but are presumably very close to those of %OB00153.

Event History

A set of three plates of an original set of four, the last inscribed only on the inner side, the others on both faces. Their surface is flat, without raised rims. The hole (1 cm in diameter) for the connecting ring is on the left-hand side, vertically at the centre, and horizontally about 5 cm from the left edge. The first plate as well as the connecting ring and the seal are lost.

Inscriptions
  1. Dimensions estimated from plate size. Letter size is also an estimate, no figure is reported. 13 lines on the first plate, 11 on the second plus a seal impression.

A thick plate inscribed on one face only, presumed the verso. The edges are thickened into rims. Perforated about the middle of the upper side for the connecting ring. The weight of the plates is reported by #Pandey_1949-50:264 as 1.5 seers each. Pandey has apparently not seen the plates personally and the figure seems excessive, even 1400 grams for the two plates sounds a bit too much.

A single copper plate inscribed on both sides. The proper right side (verso) of the plate bulges outward in the middle, where a seal was likely attached. The plate weighs 367 grams. The dimensions given above probably pertain to the inscribed area, not to the whole plate.

Inscriptions
  1. Single plate, 14 lines on recto and 15 lines on verso. The right edge (recto view) of the plate seems to have broken off, obliterating the last character of some lines on the recto face. Dimensions above probably pertain to the inscribed area but may instead be those of the entire plate.

A set of four plates, the first and last inscribed only on the inner sides; the second and third on both faces. The plates were connected by a ring, but the ring itself was not closed and no seal was found. The hole for the ring is near the centre of the left-hand edge (relative to the writing on all faces).
