LOCATION This is the east column in the south-facing triple doorway of the east chamber of the Initial Series Building, in situ at the time of Maler's visit in 1887. It is now in the Museo Baluartes la Soledad, Campeche.

CONDITION A monolithic column, it was still in excellent condition at the time of Maler's visit. His photograph shows no sign of incipient flaking, but within 15 years, as Thompson's plaster cast shows, two-and-a-half glyph-blocks had cracked away, perhaps as the result of a milpa fire.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Cylindrical.

CARVED AREAS A rectangular panel occupying about one-third of the circumference.

PHOTOGRAPHS Maler 1887. Plaster cast:

Peabody Museum photograph.

DRAWING Graham, based on Maler's photograph, the plaster cast, and von Euw's field drawing corrected by artificial light.
