18.104.22.168.0 11 Ajaw 8 Sek (29 Apr, 752)
The lintel depicts Bird Jaguar IV in dance alongside one of his wives or consorts, Lady Great Skull. The king manipulates a K'awiil scepter, while Lady Great Skull supports a large bundle of jades (marked with the label i-ka-tzi ihkaatz "jades"). The text suggest s that this event took place in front of a large crowd.
Because the full regnal name of Shield Jaguar IV appears at the close of the inscription (K2), it seems reasonable to regard this monument as having been commissioned during his reign rather than his father's.
