Dado carved in bas-relief (type 10). This type is represented by one specimen. The decoration is composed of one section with a sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. They are set against a vegetal pattern of interlaced half-palmettes and fleur-de-lis.

The height of the panel is 36-36.4 cm, its width from 74.8 to 16.5 cm; its thickness is 6.1-6.4 cm.

The artifact was found re-employed in the Ghazni area in 1957.

Type 10 might have been used as an architectural dado or as a tomb paneling. It differs from dadoes types 11a, 11b, 11c, 11d, 12, 13 mainly for the vegetal pattern.
