LOCATION This is the eastern 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 clearing rubble from that building. The column is now in the Museo del Camino Real, Hecelchakan, Campeche.

CONDITION A monolithic column, it was in excellent condition when discovered, except for damage at the top edge of the carved panel. Since then, most of glyph Al and the upper part of glyph B2a have split off.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE Basically cylindrical and nearly uniform in width from top to bottom, but markedly flattened at front and back.

CARVED AREA Single panel occupying one-third of the circumference.

PHOTOGRAPH Pollock.

DRAW1NG von Euw, with amendments by Graham, based on a field drawing corrected by artificial light and Pollock's photograph.
