The Distance Number is followed by two glyph groups which are a T644 'seating' complex (c.f. Berlin, 1970a:141). The 'seating' complex is followed by 8 Ok 3 Kayab, just 132 days later. The 6 Etz'nab 11 Yax at 8 Ok 3 Kayab is the 'accession' date of Lord Chan-Bahlum, Lord Shield Pacal's successor. The Calendar Round is followed by the T713/757 'accession' compound, and then by 'Lord Chan-Bahlum/Palenque'. Two and a half glyph blocks of unknown significance occur at S11-S12A, followed at S12b-T12 by 'u cimi ("his death")/Lord Shield/Palenque'. This is a fitting way to end the long inscription which immortalizes Lord Shield.
