Carved sapodilla-wood lintel showing Maya lord under arch formed by double-headed serpent. Temple IV appears to mark the reign of Ah Cacaw's son and successor, Yax Kin Caan Chac. The two carved wooden lintels over the wide doorway leading ínto the narrow-roomed shrine on its summit record the date (A.D. 741).
