Ixkun, Stela 3

LOCATION Lying with its carved face up, in front of Structure 6 and just to the south of Stela 2. Apparently seen by Maudslay, it was first described by Morley.

CONDITION Only the upper half of this stela survives, and its carved surface is badly weathered. Removal of soil down to the level of the plaza floor failed to disclose other fragments or the butt of the stela.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Parallel sides with a flattish top, slightly rounded. The back of the shaft, which is smoothly dressed, is narrower than the front.

DIMENSIONS

Ht 2.56m+
MW 1.08m
MTh 0.43m
ReI 4.0cm

CARVED AREAS Front only.
