LOCATION Found by J. A. Graham and Fiske in 1961 lying broken on the platform at the junction of Causeways I, II, and III. Re-erected by the Peabody Museum.

CONDITION The shaft was broken near the base of carving, and the portion above the headdress had broken into one large and several smaller pieces. The upper third of the sculptured surface is largely obliterated, a narrow strip of the lower left edge is missing, and there is damage to the figure's left shoulder; otherwise the preservation is excellent. Looters at some time began sawing the shaft, but gave up on finding the stone too hard. Repaired prior to re-erection.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE An irregular column tapering to a blunt extremity, lenticular in section.
