LOCATION The constituent blocks of this incomplete mosaic panel were found by Robertson among rubble on the south side of Structure 1, east of the stairway. Intending to remove them to safety by helicopter, she assembled all that could be found without excavation. Von Euw, however, took them to Dolores with pack mules. The blocks were then removed from Dolores by the Instituto de Antropolagfa e Historia.

CONDITION Many elements of the panel are missing, perhaps still buried in debris. Robertson (1972, p. 94) states that fifteen fragments were found; we have a record of eleven, some of which are in excellent condition, others broken or badly weathered.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE The undamaged blocks are rectangular and neatly trimmed.

DIMENSIONS The width of the undamaged blocks varies between 0.29 and 0.37 m, the thickness between 0.20 and 0.50 m. The depth of relief runs up to 7.0 cm.
