This is the symbol for area with the addition of a line which represents a third dimension. Hence, it is an ideograph for a cuboid. A cuboid was a measure of capacity. It can be likened to the Mesopotamian gur. In this instance, the cuboid is divided into four Indus units.

In Mesopotamia a gur was used to measure the volume of oil. This also appears to have been the case in the Indus Valley Civilisation because in Indus inscription H-10, the cuboid of Mahadevan's sign number 1018 is combined with the the verb to brush, to form an ideograph for the verb to grease.
