LOCATION Northernmost of the four stelae set in front of Structure B-7.

CONDITION The uppermost portion of the monument has never been found and may simply have disintegrated (owing to trees falling on it, trees growing into it, etc.). The restof the stela is in varying degrees of conservation, from the well preserved top to the almost completely eroded central portion. The sides are badly eroded. The stela was discovered in 1921 by the CIW, and the large main fragment was turned over, photographed, and once again placed on its face. The lower part of the stela had not been exposed by the CIW and when, like the main fragment, it was turned over in 1975, it was in many pieces with portions missing. Before leaving the site the monument was again set face down.

MATERIAL Poor quality limestone.

SHAPE Parallel sides. Shape of top unknown.

CARVED AREAS Front and sides.

PHOTOGRAPHS von Euw.

DRAWINGS von Euw; based on field drawings corrected by artificial light.

REMARKS A few small fragments were found which could not be reassembled. They are not included here, but a photographic record of them (as well as drawings) is kept at the Peabody Museum. The glyph designation given by Morley has been slightly changed.
