LOCATION This stela was discovered by ClW workers in 1922, lying dose to the northeast corner of Structure A-2, face upward and partly covered by debris fallen from the mound.

CONDITION The left-hand edge and top have suffered damage, presumably from falling masonry; fortunately the only fragment broken off that carried carved design was recovered. The upper portion of the stela, having been longest protected from erosion by debris, is least eroded. The lower portion is severely pitted.

MATERIAL Limestone of fine gmin.

SHAPE The front surface is flat, and the undamaged side is smoothly dressed to give the shaft parallel sides, which curve inward toward the top to give a rounded tip.

CARVED AREAS Front only.

PHOTOGRAPH Morley, 1922.

DRAWING Graham, based on a field drawing corrected by artificial light.
