Structure VI [January 4, 2003]

Flanking the top of the stair on Structure VI is the first known monument associated with Ruler 5 (Stela 24 on the left), paired with Stela 23 (right) which portrays his wife. Both are dated to the Mayan year 9.13.10.0.0 (702 A.D.).

These stela are very eroded, but for a drawing which suggests how they might have looked, see Ruppert & Denison's Plate 49, which depict another famous husband and wife stela pair, stela 28 and 29.
