LOCATION This cornice was found by Roberts during excavation of the South Building. The constituent stones were lying on the north side of the building, their position suggesting that they had served as a medial moulding or cornice in the facade. Correct ordering of all the stones can at present be achieved only for one group of five and for two pairs of stones. These groups and the four single stones have been allocated Roman numerals, so that a particular glyph-block may be referred to in this fashion: XLM:Crn.1, VII F. Stone II, the second half of V, and the first half of VI are lost; the second half of VI is in the Museo de Yucatan; the remainder are in the Museo Regional, Campeche.

CONDITION In general well preserved, apart from small losses presumably sustained during collapse. The plan published by Pollock (1970, fig. 735) suggests a facade about 7.5 m long, so that, with the known blocks having a total length of 6.4 m, the loss of two blocks is possible.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Well-trimmed rectangular blocks fashioned with stubby tenons for embedding in masonry.

CARVED AREAS Front only.

PHOTOGRAPHS von Euw, except for those of the missing blocks, which are by Pollock.
