LOCATION The stela was found by the CIW in 1920 still in place on the west side of Structure B-12. By 1974 it had disappeared from the site. It had been sawn to reduce its thickness druing the looting some three years before. Its present whereabouts is unknown.

CONDITION Because of the rather poor quality of the CIW photograph (the monument apparently had been wet for that purpose), it is difficult to judge the condition of the stela without personal inspection. It undoubtedly had weathered considerably, as details were particularly difficult to make out from the photograph.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Tapering gradually to a fairly square top.

CARVED AREAS Front only.

PHOTOGRAPH ClW.

DRAWING von Euw; based on the CIW photograph only.

DIMENSIONS

H 2.46 m
