This stele was erected on the plank road along a steep cliff of Mt. T'ien Ching, Ch'eng County, Kansu Province. The inscription includes the words "written by Ch'ou Ching of the style name Han-te." This is a rare case of mentioning the calligrapher's name in a Han stele. The characters on this stone tablet have been described as "stable like Mt. T'ai," and "like the flow of the Yellow River." Among Han dynasty clerical style calligraphy, they are closest to the standard style.
