LOCATION Found in 1926 by the Third CIW Expedition; the stela was standing within a three-sided enclosure built on a low platform in the Macanxoc Group. The mound, Structure A-8, lies about 40 m east of Stela 1.

CONDITION The known portion is in one piece, but it has almost certainly lost an upper fragment. Most of the carved surface has flaked off, leaving only a small area at the bottom in good condition.

MATERIAL Limestone of fairly fine grain, but prone to flaking.

SHAPE Parallel sides. The right-hand side and front were fairly well dressed; the other side may also have been, but is now damaged. The back was left rough.

DIMENSIONS

HLC 1.61 m PB unknown MW 1.29 m WBC 1.29 m MTh 0.29 m Rel 3.0 cm

CARVED AREAS Front only.

PHOTOGRAPHS von Euw.

DRAWING von Euw, based on a field drawing corrected by artificial light.
