LOCATION Found by I. Graham in 1964, lying face-down about 8 m to the west of the stairway of the terrace in front of Structure A-5, and close to the axis of stairway and pyramid. Re-erected by the Peabody Museum.

CONDITION Intact except for a fragment broken off at upper left. The carved surface above the glyph panel is in excellent condition, with scarcely any loss of detail, but nearly half of the glyph panel has been effaced, perhaps deliberately in J. A. Graham's opinion (1990, p. 57). Repaired before re-erection.

MATERIAL Fairly close-grained limestone of brownish hue.

SHAPE Irregular, with a strongly convex, or bulging, left side and concave right side. The top corners are chamfered rather than rounded, and the top is nearly flat. The front surface was dressed fairly flat in the upper half but undulates lower down. The sides and back were roughly finished.
