added by archaeologs Classic Maya site located 50 km north of Copan on the Rio Motagua in southeastern Guatemala. Probably at least partly controlled by its larger neighbour (perhaps through kinship ties), its architecture is unprepossessing. The site is notable, however, for its excellent examples of stone carving in the Southern Regional style. Both massive boulder carvings and stelae are unusually large (stele E for example is nearly 11 metres high). The terminal long count date of 810 is carved on a lintel of the main structure.
