Dado with pointed horseshoe arches (type 40)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 40). This type is represented by one fragmentary specimen. The existing decoration is composed of three horizontal sections: the upper section consists of a narrow beaded band, the second section of a sequence of continuous pointed arches (most probably horseshoe). The pointed arches have an inner polylobated frame.

The dimensions are unknown.

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