LOCATION These five inscribed stones, which must originally have constituted a step, or part of one, were found lying on the terrace of the Chanchimez and seem to have been noticed first by Morley in 1942. They were found out of context and not obviously belonging to any nearby structure. In 1969 I found them lined up edge to edge (probably for a photograph) to the south of Structure 14L-8. Recently the stones have been removed to the INAH Paradar, or Visitor Center, at Uxmal.
CONDITION Apart from corners broken off two of the stones, they are intact and fairly well preserved, although the stone is badly pitted in some areas, and the small round holes so formed are hard to distinguish from those drilled by the sculptor.
SHAPE Each block is a typical step: the front is dressed flat with a narrow border above, a much deeper one below, and a dressed upper edge which slopes down toward the rough-hewn back.
REMARKS The stones are listed by Pollock (1970, p. 267) as Miscellaneous Sculptures 29-33. The designation can stand for the component blocks of HS. 1, applying the numbers to them from left to right.
