LOCATION Found on the west side of Structure C-lO. This structure, 9 m high, and other smaller ones in front of it are situated on the flattened top of a hill which stands about 28 m higher than ground level in the plaza to the west of it. Neither Morley nOf I ever ascended this hill while exploring the site, nor did either of us notice the parallel bounding walls of a ceremonial approach up the hillside. Early in 1978 looters who were cutting a trench into the mound came upon the stela, which apparently lay covered by rubble. Their activities were discovered before they had managed to remove the stela. Shortly thereafter it was removed to Melchor de Meneos by Marco Antonio Bailey of the Instituto de Antropologia e Historia. The revised portion of the site plan printed on this page is based on a survey that I made in 1978.

CONDITION Unbroken and rather well preserved, apart from areas near the bottom that have split off and the damaged top edge. The face was evidently obliterated in antiquity.

MATERlAL Limestone.

SHAPE Parallel sides, with a rounded top.
