LOCATION Considered by Morley (1970, p.158) to have stood at the eastern end of the rear, or northernmost, row of stelae on the Platform.

CONDITION Broken in two across the middle. In his diary for 11 February, 1941 (Peabody Museum Archives) Morley mentions dowel-holes in the mating faces of the fracture. The carved surface has been seriously eroded, and part of it has split off and been lost.

MATERIAL White limestone containing a network of harder veins, attributable perhaps to a process of geological fracturing and recementing.

SHAPE The sides are slightly bowed, the top somewhat rounded, and the butt squarish.
