Inscribed Copper Plate

DATE
Century: 6th (501-600)
Notes: The date of the Garulaka charter is the year 230 (of the Gupta-Valabhi era, i.e. + 318/319). Thus the grant dates from the mid-6th century (c. 549 A.D).

A published copper-plate inscription from the Maitraka Empire, issued by a vassal-chief of the Maitraka dynasty, not by a Maitraka king himself.
