LOCATION In his published plan of the Stela Platform, Morley placed this stela in the second row from the rear (or northern) row of stelae, and in the second position in from the west. But in the plan sketched in his diary (entry for 11 February, 1941; Peabody Museum Archives) no monument is shown in that position, and the different numbering then applied makes its assigned position unclear. In any case, the three pieces of this stela now lie between Stelae 9 and 15.

CONDITION Broken into three pieces, with, at the upper break, a loss of material which extends across some threequarters of the shaft, but leaves an area of mating surfaces, although Morley states otherwise (1970, p.171). Degree of erosion is moderate, but as the relief is shallow much of it is nearly obliterated.

MATERIAL Limestone of good quality but containing some hard inclusions, for example in the area of the pectoral of the left-hand figure in the lower register.

SHAPE A well-dressed shaft, tapering somewhat from top to bottom. The top is flattish but rounded, the base squared-off.
