Dado carved in bas-relief (type 8a). This type is represented by one fragmentary specimen.
The existing decoration is composed of one section with a sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. The arches, which enclose an incised vegetal motif, alternate with vertical motifs created by split-palmettes and fleur-de-lis.

The height of the panel is 43 cm, its width 33 cm (both measures are not complete); its thickness is unknown.

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

Type 8a differs from dado type 8b for the vegetal motifs.
