LOCATION Although cracked through at the base, this stela was standing when found (it has since fallen back against the mound). It was set in front of Structure B-4, a few meters to the north of the plain Stela B4 on the east side of the main plaza of Group B.

CONDITION Broken near the base of carving. The left side no longer shows any vestige of an inscription, and the front is badly eroded, but the right side is much better preserved.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Tapers from the bottom towards the rounded top.

CARVED AREAS Front and right side, and probably left side too,

PHOTOGRAPHS Front and left side: CIW in 1921. Right side: Graham.

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