LOCATION This column is the eastern member of a pair of columns in the triple doonvay on the north side of the South Building of the Hieroglyphic Group. It was unearthed by Pollock and Roberts in 1935 in the course of clearing debris from that building. It is now in the Musco Baluartes la Soledad, Campeche.

CONDITION A monolithic column, it is intact and only moderately eroded.

MATERIAL Limestone of a somewhat coarse grain.

SHAPE Basically cylindrical but with four somewhat flattened "sides," and measuring about 5 cm more from side to side than from front to back. There is little variation in width from top to bottom.

CARVED AREAS A single panel occupying rather less than one-third of the circumference.

PHOTOGRAPH Graham.

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