Photographer's Note

This marker (Monument 69) was recovered from the centre of the Ball Court #1 at Toniná. It is now on display in the Regional Museum at Tuxtla Gutierrez. Its text references the death of lord Wak Chan K'ak who was (possibly) heir to the throne at Toniná. He died in 775 CE without having achieved power. The work is from the Late Classic era.
