Yaxchilán - 2001 - The picture above is of Stele 27. The person is Knot-eye Jaguar I, and it is believed to represent an event in 514 A.D. Many believe this is the oldest stela at Yaxchilan.

Per Wikipedia: Stela 27 has been re-erected in front of Structure 9 on the Main Plaza in the Central Acropolis. The monument dates to 514 and depicts the king Knot-eye Jaguar I. This stela is the earliest known from Yaxchilan. Stela 27 is particularly notable because it was obviously damaged in antiquity and subsequently restored in the Late Classic, with substantial reworking in the lower third of the stela dating to the time of Bird Jaguar IV.
