LOCATION The stela was standing in the plaza of Group E when that group was discovered in 1922. Stela 18 is the northernmost of three stelae on the west side of Structure E-2.

CONDITION The shaft is unbroken. The front is severely weathered, with the formation of many deep pits. The back also is pitted, but the more even erosion on that side has been less disfiguring.

MATERIAL Limestone, geologically fractured and recemented.

SHAPE The shaft tapers from the base upward, coming to a roughly parabolic top. The front face is broader than the back, and the bull is squared off.

CARVED AREAS Front and back only.

PHOTOGRAPHS Graham.

DRAWING Graham, based on a field drawing corrected by artificial light.
