The uppermost plain section of the post bears an inscription: Pusasa thabhodhama. The panel may well be a representation of the nativity of the Buddha in the sala forest at Lumbini, in which case the main figure could be identified with Maya; this identification would be further reinforced if the creature represented on the stambha were indeed a horse as it has been conjectured that the pillar set up by Asoka at Lumbini was crowned by a horse capital.
