LOCATION Between Stelae 15 and 17 and facing the stairway leading up to Structure B-10.

CONDITION Stela 16 is broken into many pieces. Several fragments have crumbled and disappeared, and the portion surviving has lost almost all of its carving. Very few traces of sculpture remain on the left side of the stela, whereas, that on the right side has completely deteriorated. Stela 16 was left lying face up.

MATERIAL Porous limestone.

SHAPE Apparently parallel sides, with rounded top.

PHOTOGRAPHS von Euw.

CARVED AREAS Front and sides.

DRAWING von Euw; based on field drawing corrected by artificial light.

REMARKS There is an altar equidistant from this stela and Stela 17, rather than associated with this monument alone, as interpreted by Morley.
