This leather piece has an impressed circular shape which reveals its last use as cover tied over a pot or a similar object. It is slightly discoloured with a light red tone inside. The leather cover was discovered in the ruins of a house about a mile from a Buddhist shrine. The architectural features, such as decorative wood-carvings in quasi-classical style, were particularly well-preserved.
