LOCATION This stela was found standing south of Structure A-5 and is the stela second nearest it in a line of four extending toward the terrace of Structure A-1S. The lower 0.50 m or so of sculpture was then below ground level. In 1978, the stela was lying in a trench excavated by the CIW.

CONDITION In one piece when discovered, it was evidently cracked through and has since broken in two. The carved surfaces are quite badly eroded. A considerable imperfection or loss in the upper left-hand area may he original; so also would seem to be the rough area on the right side.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Parallel sides with rounded top. Butt is roughly squared off.

PHOTOGRAPHS Graham.

CARVED AREAS Front and both sides.

DRAWING Graham, based on field drawings corrected by artificial light.

REMARKS Morley's sketch shows vestiges of glyph cartouches, which he labeled A2 and B1. I can see no evidence that they existed, therefore, his glyphs A3, A4, 82, 83, and 84 are renumbered here as A2, A3, 81, 82, and 83.
