LOCATION Found during the Peabody Museum's 1961 reconnaissance at the foot of the lower stairway on the east side of Structure A-24, but the fallen upper part was not turned until 1965. Re-erected in 1967.

CONDITION Broken in two when found and showing some erosion, especially on the right-hand side where the quality of stone is inferior. Repaired before re-erection.

MATERIAL Limestone of uneven quality, with a stratum of coarse breccia coming to the surface toward the right-hand side and back.

SHAPE Sides more or less straight and tapering towards the base; the top asymmetrically peaked; the back roughly dressed and rounded, making the shaft thicker on the centerline.
