Dado with interlaced arches (type 6)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 6). This type is represented by one specimen. The existing decoration is composed of two horizontal sections: the upper section consists of a cursive epigraphic band, the middle section of a sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. The trilobated arches, enclosing an incised rosette (?), alternate with vegetal motifs created by split-palmettes and fleur-de-lis.

The dimensions are unknown.

The artifact was found re-employed in the Ghazni area in 1958.
