LOCATION Found by Blom lying in pieces on the centerline of the stairway leading from the Nunnery courtyard up to the terrace of the North Range, this stela straddles the riser of the third of the three broad steps that begin the stairway.

CONDITION Blom retrieved 27 fragments from among other debris and cemented them together in 1930, having failed to find only a few small pieces. The carved surfaces are quite badly eroded.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE The sides are parallel, the top rounded, and the front has a unique forward extension which gives the stela the form of a seat.

DIMENSIONS

HLC 1.16m
PB 0.24m+
MW 0.87m
WBC 0.86m
MTh 0.72m
ReI 1.2cm

CARVED AREAS Front, back, and sides, with the inscription on the front continuing down onto the "seat." The front edge below this is also inscribed (with the surviving glyphs labeled C10-E10 in the drawing).

PHOTOGRAPHS Graham.

DRAWING Graham, based on field drawings and stereophotos.
