PREVIOUS DESIGNATION Stela 10 (Morley 1926, p. 275).

LOCATION Found by the Second CIW Expedition to Coba in 1926; the stela was standing on the south side of Structure C-3, with its sculptured side facing the mound.

CONDITION Intact but badly eroded. The shaft has a hole through it in front of the figure's shins and a deep pit behind the figure’s shoulders.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE The sides may originally have been roughly parallel, and the top is flat. The front is dressed flat, and the right-hand side is fairly well finished, but the opposite side is uneven, perhaps owing to defects in the shaft, while the back is very rough.

DIMENSIONS

HLC 1.76 m
