LOCATION Found by Ruz (1954, pp. 62, 63; fig. 6; pI. XXIV) while excavating the platform in front of the Palace of the Governor from which Stephens had extracted the two-headed jaguar. Scattered throughout the fill were a large number of fragmented offerings, including the remains of six other onyx vases. Now in the Merida Museum, Palacio Canton.

CONDITION The pedestal base is intact, but only about half of the rest of the vessel survives, and its thin walls are broken into many rectangular pieces. About seven-eighths of the carved panel survives, but since Ruz photographed it a small fragment bearing a sixth glyph in the horizontal row has been lost. Erosion is scarcely perceptible.

MATERIAL Mexican onyx, or tecalli.

SHAPE Inverted conical frustum on low pedestal.

CARVED AREAS Rectangular panel occupying about one-sixth of the bowl's circumference.

PHOTOGRAPHS Graham.

DRAWING Graham, based on his firsthand drawing.

REMARKS Karl Mayer (1989) has published a short article on this vase, with drawing by Nikolai Grube, in which it is referred to as Uxmal, Miscellaneous Text 1.
