King Pacal Headstone

Known as a headstone, this piece is the cover of King Pacal's tomb.
It was found into the inscription temple in Palenque. Pacal started his
reign when he was twelve-years-old and ended sixty eight years later

His tomb was carved in a huge stone, so big that experts suppose it
was formed into the pyramid before its construction. King Pacal's corpse was placed in a waisted sacophagi that resembled the Egyptian style.
 The covering which sealed the entrance of the tomb was slipped
on with the help of trunks.
