LOCATION This is the western member of a pair of columns in the triple doorway on the south side of the Middle Building of the Hieroglyphic Group. It was found in 1935 by Pollock and Roberts in the course of dearing rubble from that building. The column is now in the Museo del Camino Real, Hecelchakan, Campeche.

CONDITION The carved surface remains in almost pristine condition, apart from minor damage to one glyph-block.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Basically cylindrical and nearly uniform in width from top to bottom, but markedly flattened at front and back. The column is composed of two drums of very different height.

CARVED AREAS A single carved panel occupying more than one-third of the circumference.

PHOTOGRAPH Graham.

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