Panel with octagons pattern (type 7)

Panels (prob. rectangular) composing a high facing.

As concerns the existing decoration, it shows an octagons modular pattern, generating cross-shaped elements. Palmettes, scrolls and fleur-de-lis are carved inside the octagons, while converging fleur-de-lis inside the cross-shaped elements.

The artifacts were found re-employed in a ziyara of the Ghazni area in 1957 and 1958.
