Dado with interlaced arches (type 15)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 15). This type is represented by a single specimen. The decoration is composed of two horizontal sections: the upper section consists of a cursive epigraphic band, the lower section of sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. The arches are set against a vegetal pattern of interlaced half-palmettes and fleur-de-lis.

The dimensions are unknown.

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

Type 15 might have been used as an architectural dado or as a tomb paneling.
