LOCATION According to Morley's plan, this stela was found at the east end of the third row from the rear of stelae on the Platform. The two fragments still lie in that area.

CONDITION The two known fragments share mating surfaces neither when arranged as shown nor when the upper fragment is inverted, as suggested by Pollock (Morley 1970, note 22). Possibly there was an intermediate fragment, now missing, or else the lower edge of the upper fragment was trimmed at some time to allow the piece to be reused as a small standing monument. There appears to be a material loss also at the top of the upper fragment. Erosion of the surface has badly affected the intelligibility of the designs carved in very low relief.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE A well-dressed shaft, with sides nearly paralle1. The top of the upper fragment shows signs of rounding at the corners; the butt is dressed flat.

DIMENSIONS

HLC 0.48m
PB 0.27m
MW 0.57m
WBC 0.57m
MTh 0.30 m
ReI 0.3cm

CARVED AREAS Front only.

PHOTOGRAPH From an original print by Leyrer, courtesy of MARl, Tulane University. In this print, unlike that published by Morley (1970, fig. 20), the space between the nonfitting fragments has been blacked out.
