LOCATION The stela was erected near the western edge of the Stela Platform, about midway between its northern and southern limits, and there it remains, with its broken pieces reassembled.

CONDITION The shaft is broken into six pieces, three or perhaps four of the five breaks appearing to have been deliberate. The cutting of grooves into the sculptured face of the shaft to facilitate breakage destroyed a significant proportion of the carved surface. In addition, the very top and small areas on the side are missing. The surface is now considerably weathered.

MATERIAL Limestone of a kind very susceptible to pitting.

SHAPE The enormous shaft was prepared with carefully dressed sides and front,

the back being left irregular. It tapers in width toward the top, which appears to have been ogival in outline. The butt is irregular.
