Fragment, possibly of a trapezoidal slab, showing a seated monk and other figures. The monk, on a strewn scat, turned towards the presumed central Buddha and with his covered hands in his lap, wears the robe with both shoulders covered and paired grooves indicating the drapery folds. Behind is a worshipping figure in uttarīya and paridhāna; above, another figure may be throwing flowers and, beside and perhaps turned towards the first monk, there may be another. The vestige of a half-pilaster is on the right.
