Drum-slab. A stūpa drum-slab carved in limestone in two horizontal registers with images of the Cakravartin or universal monarch. The upper register shows the standing Cakravartin with his right hand raised to the heavens to create a shower of coins; he is flanked by four attendants and his horse and elephant. The lower register shows the Cakravartin seated on a throne with his queen, parasol bearer, wheel of sovereignty, minister and horse and elephant. Two kneeling supplicants present a tray to the king on which are indistinct objects, probably money and precious gems.
