LOCATION When found, the surviving portion of this stela was standing in situ on the north side of Structure B-8 between Stela 5 and Altar 1. After excavating its setting, the CIW left the fragment buried in the trench.

CONDlTION The upper half or third is now missing. The front surface is rather badly weathered, but with patches of detail preserved; the back is in better condition over about half its surface.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Original shape is beyond determination. Butt is asymmetrical and comes to a blunt point.

CARVED AREAS Front carved in relief, back in intaglio rilevato.

PHOTOGRAPHS Front: CIW. Back: Graham.

DRAWINGS Graham. That of the front based on a photograph only; that of the back based on a field drawing corrected by artificial light.
