LOCATION This stela was discovered in 1922 by Morley and his co-workers. It was standing, as it still does, at the foot of the cast stairway of Structure E-7.

CONDITION lntact. The front is moderately well preserved, but at some time since 1922 when the CIW photographs were taken, a lamina of stone from the lower left-hand area split off and was lost; on this was carved the captive on that side. Much of the back has been obliterated by weathering and blows from falling masonry. The inscription at the top of the right side appears not to have been completed.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE The shaft is of nearly uniform width but is markedly convex on the left side and concave on the right. The butt is squared off.

DIMENSIONS
