LOCATION Second from the right-hand (southern) end in the front row of four stelae on the terrace at the foot of Structure C-9. In about 1966 looters broke up the stela, and two years later the fragments constituting the front surface came to light in the U.S. Customs at Houston, Texas, in a crate marked "Machinery." Through court action the government of Guatemala regained possession of these fragments.

CONDITION The stela had fallen forward and lay unbroken when discovered by Maler. The front was in practically perfect

condition, the back considerably eroded. Since being smashed up by looters, the front is crisscrossed with breaks but has retained most of its fine detail. The back lies in a thousand chips at the site.

MATERIAL Fine-grained limestone.

SHAPE Parallel sides with nearly flat top.

CARVED AREAS Front and back.

PHOTOCRAPHS Reproduced from Maler's original negatives of 1905.

DRAWINGS Graham. Drawing of the front based on Maler's photograph and examination of the reassembled fragments; that of the back based on Maler's and Morley's photographs.
