LOCATION The fragments were found widely separated from each other south of Structure B-1; they had obviously been moved and their original position could not be ascertained.

CONDITION The main group of fragments was found scattered over an area of about six square meters. Although much detail remains, the stone is quite friable as the result of fires. A saw cut is also in evidence. The two other fragments, found about 10 or 12 m away, are perhaps in worse condition. Most of this stela has probably been removed by looters.

MATERIAL Limestone with iron oxide veins.

SHAPE Parallel sides; shape of top unknown.


HLC 1.70m
PB 0.14m+
MW 0.96m
MTh 0.33m
ReI 2.0cm

CARVED AREAS Front, back, and sides.
