Stela D (Back)

Stela dates to 10 Ahau 8 Chen, which translates to the 26th July, 736AD. This was one of the last monuments erected by 18 Rabbit, who was assassinated the following year. The detail in the glyphs here, on the back of the Stela, is quite phenomenal (click here to read about the stelae of Copan).
