LOCATION Easternrnost of the three stelae on the south side of Structure C-6.

CONDITION Unbroken when found by Maler and apparently lying face down, since he writes of the relief having suffered from the moisture of the soil. The surface has indeed been severely eroded in an unusual way, with the recessed background left unaffected.In the mid-1960s the stela was shattered by fire or explosives set by looters. The lower half was left in fragments, some of which had disappeared a few years later; the upper part, although thoroughly cracked, remained coherent.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE The almost parallel sides taper somewhat towards the base; the top is rounded and irregular.

DIMENSIONS

HLC 3.40m
PB .80m
MW 1.07m
WBC O.94m
MTh O.34m
ReI 3.2cm

CARVED AREAS Front, and both narrow sides.

PHOTOGRAPHS Reproduced from Maler's negatives taken in 1905, except for the upper part of the right-hand side down to glyphs G10 and H7, which is from a photograph by Graham. Stereophotos also by Graham.

DRAWINGS Front: von Euw. Sides: Graham. All were based on field drawings corrected by artificial light. the missing sections of the sides, for which the only record is Maler's, are E16-21, F17-21, G18-20, and small areas of other glyphs.
