Panel from Temple XIV, with enlarged details of captions surrounding figures. K'inich Kan B'alam II, wearing GIII attributes, dances on a register marked with water iconography. The kneeling female is probably Lady Tz'akb'u Ajaw, Kan B'alam II's mother; she offers a K'awiil manikin.
The text first mentions GIII in the first part of the text; it then leaps forward to historical time, describing an event by members of the Palenque Triad and K'inich Kan B'alam II.
