DATES

This piece does not contain a date.   Yet it was apparently reset in Structure 22 by Bird Jaguar IV (Proskouriakoff 1964: 182), and can be palaeographically dated to the late 5th or early 6th-century.

DESCRIPTION

This lintel was probably all-glyphic, containing approximately 29 glyph-blocks, of which fragments of 5 are all that remains.   It evidently opened with a long count, as suggested by those portions of the ISIG, glyphs G and F and the lunar series which survive.
