LOCATION Between Stelae 18 and 20 on the west side of (and facing) Structure B-7.

CONDITION Most of the stela has disappeared. The top piece is the only fragment on which the sculpture has survived and here, too, a considerable portion has flaked off or weathered away. It was found lying face down in 1921 by the CIW and was left lying on its side. A groove along the border in the sides is the only indication of previous carving. The other fragment found is so completely eroded that the front cannot be distinguished from the back.

MATERIAL Poor quality limestone.

SHAPE Sides gradually tapering to a flattish top.

CARVED AREAS Front and sides.

PHOTOGRAPHS von Euw.

DRAWING von Euw; based on field drawing corrected by artificial light.

REMARKS No altar was found associated with this monument, although one appears in Modey's map.

DIMENSIONS Top fragment

H 1.84 m
