    It seems that recently excavated inscription form El Palmar mentions the same character as on Chakchoben stela: u-BAAH 13-CHAN-na KUY?-NAL PIK? SAK-o-ka 6-PIHT?-AJAW

    Are the drawings available online?

      Sorry to take a while to respond (I was in Yucatan). No, no drawings of El Palmar’s HS are available yet, since these things obviously take time. The El Palmar project will be publishing their images and results at some point, no doubt.
