Chapter Summary

This section presents inscription transcriptions, translations and notes relevant to the analysis of stone sculptures at Mathura. Archaeological excavations conducted at Sonkh and other sites in and near Mathura reveal that before the Maurya period, Mathura was a hamlet of little consequence. Although pottery sherds and sundry terra-cotta and metal items have been found in pre-Maurya and Maurya strata, no sculptures or architeractural elements made in stone have been recovered from archaeological contexts that correspond to dates earlier than the mid-second century BCE.

Keywords: Mathura; Sonkh; stone sculpture
