The Karoshti inscription reads viradasa-putrasa hastidasasa, which means "[Property] of Hastidasa, son of Viradasa." The elongated, indented lobes and bordered lotus motif are somewhat unusual for this type of bowl. Most silver pieces favor clearly defined egg-shaped lobes with the lotus petals extending fully outwards. For similar lotiform motifs in gold from Bactria see, V. Sariandi, Bactrian Gold, 1985, p. 226, no. Ill.43, and p. 235, no. 32.
