Inscription number 125.

Kosam Stone-Slab Inscription of Shadramaghha -(saka) Year 87.
Provenance: Hasanabad, Close to the remains of ancient Kausambi, Prayagraj district, Uttar Pradesh.
Script: Early Gupta or pre-Gupta Brahmi.
Language: Prakrit.
References: Daya Ram Sahni, Ep.Ind., XVIII, pp.160.

From the facsimile in Ep.Ind., VIII, facing pp.160, No. III.
The numeral looks more like 8.
But the year meant was 87, as we know from two other stone slab
inscriptions, bearing inscriptions, most probably identical with the present one, which seems to have been discarded because of some mistakes. The year
here is only in numerals, not in words.
Sahni takes it, to be the Gupta era.
