Stela 9
This monument was erected at the end of the Middle Classic Period (600-800 CE). Stela 9 depicts Lord "Smoking Shell" holding a double headed ceremonial bar diagonally across his chest. The headdress depicted on this monument has typical traits of the Early Classic Period (250-600 CE). Stela 9 was placed on the primary axis of a room within structure N10-27 which is unusual in the Maya lowlands. At the base of Stela 9, the remains of five children were recovered, associated with chert, shell, and obsidian items.
