LOCATION Terrace of Structure B-20.

CONDITION Broken into two pieces at least, when found by Maler, with all traces of carving weathered away over much of the surface.

MATERIAL Close-grained limestone.

SHAPE the shape of the whole shaft is unknown.

DIMENSIONS

Ht 1.53m
MW 1.01m
MTh O.30m
ReI 1.0cm

CARVED AREAS Front in low relief, sides incised.

PHOTOGRAPHS Graham, 1973.

DRAWINGS Graham, based on photographs taken after ink had been applied to the incised lines as they were revealed by artificial light.

REMARKS The fragment illustrated was found by Maler among debris halfway dawn the substructure, below the terrace. The butt of the stela was excavated by him but seems to have become buried in debris again by 1970; Morley gives its length, or height, as 1.47m. As the one surviving detail of sculpture on the front shows the end of a ceremonial bar, it must be assumed that another quite large fragment forming the upper part of the stela remains to be found.
