There was recent news about the accidental discovery of two idols of Devi Durga in Kashmir, one of which has been dated 1200 years old while the other is 1300 years old.

The news bites have labeled her as Durga since she is sitting on a lion's throne. But unlike Ma Durga both the idols show her with just two hands carrying a lotus in one and possibly a decorated sword or what seems to me like a plant stalk in the other hand. Please see the images below:
So I want to understand if this depiction is true of Goddess Durga or is it some other form of Devi?
