LOCATION This stela was discovered in 1920 by the Carnegie Institution of Washington, still in situ directly behind Stela 3 and in front of the stairway leading up to Structure A-2.

CONDITION Scarcely more than the bottom panel of the stela has been found, and this is quite eroded. No trace of the rest of the stela has been found.

MATERIAL Poor quality limestone.

SHAPE Unknown, although sides were probably parallel.

CARVED AREAS Front and sides.

PHOTOGRAPHS von Euw. Because Stela 22 is set too close to Stela 3 to permit photographing, a latex mold of its front surface was made in 1974, and the cast of this was photographed.

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

REMARKS Morley states in The Inscriptions of Peten tha t there are double columns of glyphs on the sides of Stela 22; they are in fact single columns on both sides.
