A Bactrian white coloured hardstone column idol with inclusions and veins. A cylindrical body, conical in shape, flaring towards either end, with a shallow groove down the centre at each end.

Such columns remain enigmatic objects: Their specific archaeological contexts would suggest that they were prized and important sculptures, probably related to the religious and cult sphere: funerary contexts, sanctuaries, caches.

Condition : Generally fine condition; one end eroded and uneven and a few other surface grazes.
