LOCATION This is the west jamb of the south doorway of the east chamber of the Initial Series Building, in situ when first seen by Maler. The two slabs constituting the jamb proper are in the Museo Baluartes la Soledad, Campeche; the inscribed masonry blocks that adjoined are lost.

CONDITION The carved surfaces have suffered little erosion, but the inscription on the outer edge, which was carved partly on the edge of the jamb proper and partly on the adjoining masonry, was no longer complete when first discovered owing to the loss of two masonry blocks. One of these, carrying the left portion of glyphs A1 and A2, was later found by Pollock.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE The two slabs constituting the jamb proper and the adjoining masonry blocks were well dressed.

CARVED AREAS Face and outer (left) edge.
