LOCATION Morley places the fragment (or fragments) of this stela in the middle of the third row from the back, but its present location is closer to the east side of the platform.

CONDITION The stela has been broken into two or more pieces. The carved surface of the lower portion (about one third of the whole, perhaps) has escaped serious erosion, whereas a fragment that Morley (1970, p.176) regarded as part of this stela has either, as he believed, lost all traces of carved design through erosion, or else it was part of a different stela that was uncarved (and is not illustrated here).

MATERIAL Limestone. The putative upper fragment appears to be of softer stone.

SHAPE Carved fragment: Parallel sides and squared-off butt. "Upper" fragment: parallel sides, one end irregular from breakage, the other end drilled with a dowel-hole and apparently having had its corners rounded.
