LOCATION When discovered by Morley or one of his co-workers in 1922, the lower part of the stela was in situ, forming the central member of a group of three erected at the foot of the mound supporting Structure E-2. Instead of facing due west toward Structure E-7, the stela was turned nlmost toward the northwest, this setting later being shown by excavation to be original.

CONDITION Broken into four pieces. Front and back have suffered considerable erosion; there are also losses of portions of the carved surface of the front due to fracturing. The middle fragments, present in 1978, could not be found in 1985.

MATERIAL Limestone, hard but uneven in texture.

SHAPE Asymmetrical, coming to an off axis point; butt squarish.

PHOTOGRAPHS Front: Graham. Back: top and bottom fragments, Graham; two middle fragments, Morley.

DRAWlNGS Graham, based on field drawings corrected by artificial light.
