LOCATION Second from the northern end of four stelae on the western side of the platform on which Structures 9, 10, and 11 are built. The stela lies on its back with the butt still in situ, as it did when first reported by Merle Greene Robertson.

CONDITION Broken into three extant pieces: the main body of the shaft, one small fragment, and the butt carrying a small portion of the design. Other small fragments are lost. A vertical fissure runs down the middle of the sculptured face, the surface of which is severely eroded.

MATERIAL Limestone.
