Tikal: Stela 21 [January 7, 1998]

Stela placed before major structures usually include a dedication date. Stela 21 records that Yik'in dedicated this temple on 22 July AD 736. By association, this date is also assumed to be the date of construction of the Temple, but not necessarily of the roof comb.
