LOCATION Found by Fiske and J. A. Graham in 1961, lying broken on the platform at the junction of Causeways I, II, and III, its main fragment lying exposed but facedown about 2 ill south of Stela 14. The few fragments that were found were transferred to the Museo Nacional de Arquealogia y Etnologia, Guatemala City.

CONDITION The front surfaces of the known fragments are in near pristine condition; the inscribed left-hand side has been weathered into illegibility.

MATERIAL Dense, fine-grained, yellowish limestone showing at mid-thickness a layer of small bubblelike cavities.

SHAPE Front flat; left side dressed perpendicular to front, but the next-largest fragment, presumed to be from the righthand side, has its side dressed obliquely, widening toward the back. The back is flat but roughly dressed.
