On the four sides of the milestone, two relief art sculptures are depicted and both are replicated on opposite sides of the milestone. One depicts a knight standing in the doorway of a castle with a star and moon overhead. The other sculpture depicts three lions elongated, as if running, with seven small hearts dispersed between them.
