LOCATION Found by Barnum Brown in 1948 (Adams 1963, p. 93) lying face-up in the center of the large terrace east of Structure A-24. From the way it fell it had dearly faced east. The stela was reset in its original location by the Peabody Museum in 1967.
CONDITION Unbroken. Athaugh a considerable loss of surface due to weathering is evident from indurated inclusions now standing proud from the surface, little of consequence would seem to have been obliterated from the design. A crack curving through the upper-right area does not penetrate far through the stone and represents a fault in the stone rather than damage from its fall to the ground.
MATERIAL Hard, fine~grained limestone containing extremely hard inclusions. Natural cracks in the stone were anciently filled with plaster.
SHAPE Irregular: the right-hand side is straight whereas the left bulges irregularly; the top slopes downwards to the left and is poorly finished. The front is far from flat, having a pronounced trough running horizontally across at shoulder level. The back is roughly dressed.
DRAWING Graham, based on a 1962 field drawing and later revision.
