LOCATION This stela, according to Morley's published plan, stood in the center of the rear (or northernmost) row of stelae on the Stela Platform, but the present position of the fairly heavy fragments suggests rather that it stood in the next row, or even further south.
CONDITION The upper portion, following breakage, was evidently put back in place with the use of a dowel, whereas the lower break shows no sign of repair. The middle portion was considerably eroded in 1930 and has seemingly deteriorated badly since then; part of its carved surface has also been lost by fracture'. The bottom portion bearing the lower sculp-. tural panel is even more weathered, while the most severe damage to the upper fragment has come from the surface splitting off, though Morley found and cemented back some of the detached pieces, and I found another.
MATERIAL White limestone containing irregular reddish layers.
SHAPE Parallel sides with irregular top (the convexity in the outline at the upper left appears to be original). The butt is squarish.
