Abstract: If H is a maximal cone of a ring A such that the subring generated by H is a commutative integral domain that satisfies a certain centrality condition in A, then there exist a maximal cone $ H'$ in a division ring $ A'$ and an order preserving monomorphism of A into $ A'$, where the subring of $ A'$ generated by $ H'$ is a subfield over which $ A'$ is algebraic. Hypotheses are strengthened so that the main theorems of the author's earlier paper hold for maximal cones.
