LOCATION Found near the base of the platform leading to Structure B-2, on its western extreme.

CONDITlON A great deal of weathering as well as some burning has left the stela in a rather fragile state. Many fragments are missing even though a day-long search for them was undertaken, and they are presumed to have been calcined beyond recognition.

MATERIAL Limestone with iron oxide veins.

SHAPE Sides taper off to a rounded top.
