Xcalumkin, Miscellaneous 5

LOCATION This is the south face of the east doorway in the medial wall of the Middle Building of the Hieroglyphic Group. At some time in the 1960s the doorway was dismantled in order to remove the carved stones for safekeeping. They were stored first at the Templo de San Juan de Dios, Merida, and later transferred to the Museo Arqueologico, Merida. One stone, which carried glyphblock A and the numerical coefficient of B, was lost.

CONDITION Except for a few losses at the edges, all the stones are in excellent state. When found, however, they were not in original order, plainly having been reset in antiquity: the block carrying glyph block I was missing, glyph-block J was inverted, and five glyphs in the column flanking the right-hand side of the doorway were jumbled.

MATERIAL Limestone.

SHAPE The blocks were finely hewn to rectangular shape.

DIMENSIONS

CARVED AREAS Front surface only.
