Many Gandhāran relic containers have inscriptions attached to them or are otherwise associated with inscriptions belonging to the same relic deposit, and the majority of these inscriptions contain dating formulas.1 My intent in the present article is to provide an overview of these, to discuss alternative means at our disposal for dating inscribed objects, and to arrange as many of the inscribed relic containers as possible in a single chronological sequence as a solid basis for further research on Gandhāran chronology. The article also provides an update to the corpus of Gandhāran relic inscriptions edited in Baums 2012 and since kept up to date as part of Baums & Glass 2002- a, adding six new inscribed relic containers and suggesting several improved readings.
