Baked clay cone; documents grant of land; broken at base; eleven lines of inscription in two columns. The lower part of the cone is now broken away, but parts of every line of the inscription are reserved. The two columns of the text are inscribed, side by side, near the top, and their position proves the cone was intended to be set upright, like a boundary-stone.
