LOCATION Found by Maler lying face down on the plaza floor, at the foot of the terrace of Structure C-9, from which he considered that it must have fallen. It is perhaps more likely that it had been set up in the plaza, close to the place where Maler found it. Removed to Melchor de Mencos in 1972.

CONDITION The top right-hand corner had been broken off when Maler discovered the stela. Although much of the sculptured surface was extremely well preserved, about one-quarter of it had flaked away. Looters in the mid-1960s thoroughly cracked the stela, possibly by means of fire and water, with the evident intention of removing it in pieces. This they never did.

MATERIAL Fine-grained limestone.

SHAPE Aimosl parallel-sided, with an irregular, flattish top.

CARVED AREAS Front only.

PHOTOCRAPH Reproduced from Maler's original negative of 1905.

DRAWING Graham, based on a field drawing corrected by artificial light, making use also of photographs taken by Morley.
