Str. VI

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 (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.
