LOCATION Set into the rear, or north, wall of the east chamber of the Initial Series Building on its medial line, this panel ran from immediately below Panel 1 down to the vault spring line, where a transverse plain band between glyph rows 7 and 8 marked the change of level; the panel then continued down to a height of about 10 cm above the floor. All but one of the eight stone blocks constituting this panel were illegally removed, perhaps in the early 19605, and are now in a private collection in Mexico City; the lowermost block is in the Museo del Camino Real, Hecekhakan, Campeche.

CONDITION The inscription is well preserved except for losses in rows 5, 14, and 16.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Narrow column of essentially uniform width, made up of eight blocks tenoned for wall mounting.

CARVED AREAS Front only.

PHOTOGRAPH Pollock.

DRAWING von Euw, based on field drawings corrected by artificial light.
