Stela 21, in front of the Temple of Inscriptions. It lists King Yik'in Chan K'awiil (Sun Sky Rain) ascent to the Tikal throne in 734.

Per Wikipedia: Stela 21 was dedicated in 736 by Yik'in Chan K'awiil. Only the bottom of the stela is intact, the rest having been mutilated in ancient times. The surviving sculpture is of fine quality, consisting of the feet of a figure and of accompanying hieroglyphic text. The stela is associated with Altar 9 and is located in front of Temple VI.
