LOCATION Found by the Sixth CIW Expedition to Coba. It lay between Structure D-16 and the northern terminus of Sacbe 8, apparently not in association with any building.

CONDITION Broken into four main fragments, of which two corner pieces are lost. The carved surface is badly eroded, and the lower left corner has been lost since discovery.

MATERIAL Shelly limestone.

SHAPE Parallel sides and flat top, perhaps also bottom. The shape suggests that this was not a stela but a lintel.
