Becan: Structure II

"Structure II...closes the entire side of the plaza but is somehow less impressive than Str. I because it slopes back toward the top. It probably had neither the monumentality of the great stairway at Str. IV nor the unapproachability of Str. I. The shape of Str. II suggests that it generally resembled the main temple at Edzna and offers fascinating possibilities, but excavation is needed before this comparison can be confirmed."
