LOCATION Found in 1899 by Maler on the terrace in front of Structure J-3, between Stelae 9 and 11.
CONDITION Maler encountered two large fragments. The top fell face up, and suffered heavy erosion on its front; the sides, however, were in good condition. By contrast, the front of the bottom fragment, having fallen face down, was very well preserved, but the sides were obliterated. A century of weathering has led to the loss of most of the detail once visible on the lower half of the front.
MATERIAL Hard, fine-grained limestone.
SHAPE Roughly parallel sides with a flat top.
CARVED AREAS Front and sides.
