LOCATION Found by J. A. Graham and Fiske in 1961, lying at the foot of the upper stairway of Structure A-24. Re-erected by the Peabody Museum.

CONDITION Broken in half. The lower half lay face-down, and much of its carved design survives in spite of considerable erosion and pitting; but the upper half, which lay face-up, retains little of it. Mended before fe-erection.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Tapers towards the base, with a fairly straight left edge, and on the right, one that bulges markedly. One comer is somewhat angular, the other rounded, and the top slopes down to the left.

DIMENSIONS

HLC 1.90m
PB 0.60m
MW 1.11m
WBC 0.85m
MTh 0.29m
Rel 1.5cm

CARVED AREAS Front only.
