Dado with double sequence of interlaced arches (type 28b)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 28b). The decoration is composed of a double sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. The arches are plain inside and alternate with vertical motifs created by split-palmettes and fleur-de-lis.

The dimensions of the complete panel included in this sub-type are unknown, but the height of the larger fragment with known dimensions is 53 cm, its thickness 30.5 cm.

The artifacts were found re-employed in the Ghazni area (the surveys occurred in the late 1950s-1970s).

Type 28b differs from dadoes type 28a for the vegetal motifs.
