Xultun, Stela 3

LOCATION The stela was found by the CIW with the front half lying face down and the back half standing in situ in front of the stairway leading to Structure A-2. Stela 3 was set directly in front of the similarly oriented Stela 22. By 1974 the carved face of the stela had been looted (it had probably been taken out about three years before).

CONDITION When Morley first examined this monument, the front half was broken into two fairly well preserved pieces. The sides, however, had eroded considerably, and large portions had flaked off.

MATERIAL Poor quality limestone.

SHAPE Generally rectangular.

CARVED AREAS Front and sides.

PtlOTOGRAPHS Front and right side: ClW. Left side: von Euw.

DRAWINGS von Euw; the left side and the lower portion of the right side are based on field drawings corrected by artificial light. The remaining drawings are based only on CIW photographs.
