LOCATION Found by one of Morley's workers on the east side of Structure C-4, lying face up. Removed to Flores in 1971.

CONDITION As found, the stela lay in five pieces, the smallest of which could not be found in 1971; this carried. portions of glyphs C8, 9. 10. A fragment affecting glyphs El, Fl, also broke off the stela before discovery and has not come to light. The front is quite badly eroded, the back moderately so.

MATERIAL Hard white limestone.

SHAPE Sides nearly parallel; top unsymmetrical, with a shoulder caused by an irregularity of the shaft as quarried. The cross section is lenticular.

CARVED AREAS Front and back.

PHOTOGRAPHS Graham, 1973; Morley's 1921 photographs have been used for the small fragment that has disappeared since his day. The apparent discontinuity in the outline of the back is due to the lower partion having been photographed from an offcenter camera position.

DRAWINGS Graham. The drawings were based on tracings from photographs of flat casts made from latex molds. In this way distortion could be avoided: direct photographs of the stela suffer from unavoidable foreshortening toward the sides, due to the curvature of the sculptured surfaces. Details in the renderings were based on field drawings corrected by artificial light, and on Morley's photographs.
