LOCATION western most of a row of three stelae on the south side of Structure C-6. Broken into pieces by looters in the mid 19605 and removed. Fragments of the front surface were confiscated in Belize and sent to the Museo Nacional de Antropologia y Etnologia, Guatemala City.

CONDITION Unbroken when found by Maler, its front surface in an excellent state of preservation, the sculpture on the back almost entirely obliterated over much of the surface. The fragments now preserved in Guatemala include glyphs A1-9 and B11,12.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Sides essentially parallel, with flattened, rounded top. The front surface was markedly curved, cylindrically, as is most apparent in a photograph by Morley, so that the cross section might be termed lenticular. However, the back surface may have had a less-pronounced curvature.

DIMENSIONS

HLC 2.23m

CARVED AREAS Front and back.

PHOTOGRAPHS Front: reproduced from Maler's original negative of 1905. Back: Morley, 1921.

DRAWINGS Graham. Drawing of the front based on Maler's photograph and Morley's of l922, and examination of fragments preserved in Guatemala City; that of the back based on Morley's photographs of 1914 and 1921.
