LOCATION The fragments of this stela were found in 1921, lying in the southwest corner of the main plaza of Group B, just north of Structure B-33. Because the butt had been uprooted, the predse setting of the stela is unknown.

CONDITION The stela must have been broken into several pieces, of which five now survive. Blom saw a sixth, of which he made the sketch reproduced here at the same scale as the other drawings. The large upper fragment was lying face upward and is badly eroded on both the front and the left side. The three fitting fragments are quite well preserved.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Narrows from the middle toward both bottom and top. The top is more or less rounded. Front and back seem to be fairly flat. The butt becomes 10 cm thicker 10 cm below the lowest carving.

DIMENSIONS

HLC 3.00 m approx.
PB 0.63 m plus
MW 1.05 m
WBC unknown
MTh 0.50 m
Rel 3.0 cm
