LOCATION Found in 1899 by Maler on the terrace in front of Structure J-3, between Stelae 9 and 11.

CONDITION Maler encountered two large fragments. The top fell face up, and suffered heavy erosion on its front; the sides, however, were in good condition. By contrast, the front of the bottom fragment, having fallen face down, was very well preserved, but the sides were obliterated. A century of weathering has led to the loss of most of the detail once visible on the lower half of the front.

MATERIAL Hard, fine-grained limestone.

SHAPE Roughly parallel sides with a flat top.

DIMENSIONS

Ht 4.10m
MW 1.02 m
MTh 0.51 m

CARVED AREAS Front and sides.

PHOTOGRAPHS Maler (front, lower fragment, PMAE no. H7552), Graham (front, upper fragment, CMHI neg. no. 1716/3,4; left side, CMHI neg. no. 1920/2; right side, CMHI neg. no. 1796/1).

DRAWINGS Stuart, based on photographs and inspection of surviving fragments.
