LOCATION Found by Arthes and Lopez lying on the ground. If face-down, as its good condition suggests, they must have turned it to make a mold. The stela had been set in front of the south stairway of Structure A-3.
CONDITION Intact. Two cracks disfiguring the front surface cannot be attributed to its fall, for they are natural blemishes in the stone. There is another blemish just below the pectoral, a hole connecting with an internal cavity. The carved details are in general very well preserved, except for small losses here and there. The stela was re-erected by the Peabody Museum.
MATERIAL A hard, fine-grained limestone.
SHAPE Tapers towards the base, with straight edges. The top is canted, with a sharp upper-left corner and a well-rounded one on the right. The plane of the carved surface is flat but slightly "twisted." Back and sides are well dressed.
DRAWING Graham, based on a field drawing corrected by artificial light.
