LOCATION In situ over the doorway in the northwest end of Structure 22, where it was seen by Maler.

CONDITION Unbroken, but most of the surface that formerly bore an inscription has corroded and scaled away. The portion not thus destroyed retains a hard, almost polished finish with red paint adhering to it.

MATERIAL Very fine-grained limestone.

SHAPE The surface is flat; the sides are parallel.

CARVED AREAS Underside only, with an incised inscription.

PHOTOGRAPH Graham, 1978. The lintel having been precariously balanced on a collapsing jamb, and the doorway choked with debris, there was formerly no possibility of photographing it. I am therefore much obliged to Arqueologo Roberto Garcia Moll for having the jamb consolidated and the doorway cleared out. This doorway proved to have been reduced to about half its original width by a later construction, so that it was still impossible to photograph the entire lower surface of the lintel. Fortunately, the bottom of the panel where glyphs still survive lies over the northeastern and unobstructed side of the doorway. The bottom of glyph A5 is obscured by the jamb.

DRAWING Graham, based on a tracing made with the use of electric light.
