LOCATION When found by J. A. Graham and Fiske in 1961 it lay broken into several pieces on a low platform at the junction of Causeways I, II, and III; apparently it stood immediately south of Stela 14. No photograph or drawing was reproduced in Graham's report (1990, pp. 56, 57), but James Porter made an unpublished drawing of the stela for Graham, based on his information. In 1993 I briefly studied four of the fragments, which remained not far from where they were found.
CONDITION Two pairs of fitting fragments show remains of carving, these in turn being almost congruent with each other, although not fitting. Graham found another fragment showing an area of carved design, but this eluded me, perhaps because of further erosion. The general condition of the stela is very poor and would appear to have deteriorated considerably since discovery.
MATERIAL Limestone of fine grain, now become very soft.
SHAPE Probably a tall, narrow, and tapering shaft, similar to Stela 14 though not as thick and, like it, somewhat lenticular in cross-section.
DRAWING Graham; based, as to the lower four fragments, on photographs, rough field notes, and Porter's unpublished drawing, and entirely on the latter for the upper portion. Since in Porter's drawing no outline of the upper fragment is provided, the broken line in mine is entirely conjectural.
