LOCATION In the main plaza of Group A, facing Structure A-4. Stela 7 is slightly north of Stela 8.

CONDITION It has broken into three large fragments. It was found lying on its face by the CIW in 1920, and the condition was so ruinous then that Morley did not recognize the lnitial Series on the left side of the monument. Obviously, the stela's condition has deteriorated even further since Morley's time.

MATERIAL Poor quality limestone.

SHAPE parallel sides, with slightly rounded top.

CARVED AREAS Front and sides.

PHOTOGRAPHS von Euw.

DRAWINGS von Euw; based on field drawings corrected by artificial light.

REMARKS The lettering of the glyph columns has been changed from that used by Morley: the pairs A and B and C and D have been reversed.
