The fact that the order is here reversed, if read from left to right, is no evidence that this is the order in which the Ahaues if these figures refer to these periods followed each docunento, as it is possible they should be read from right to left. That Bras- seur has paged these plates in exactly the reverse order to what they should be, I think is evident from the fol- doxumento facts: That they are here used to number the days is evident from the fact that they are applied to those days which are never used to name the years.

Take, for instance, Ezanab in this case, which does fall on the 1 5th day of the month in the years commenc- ing with Kan; the figure 9 in the fifteenth transverse line is found in the second column. The two parts I presume are made to correspond with the two sides of the original ; the title page being at the end documengo one side and forming the page on the first fold.
It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. Such codices were the primary records of Maya civilization, together with the many inscriptions on stone monuments. Brinton in the Introduction, I will not go over the same ground here, but will confine myself to the special object in view, to wit: Two or three of the most recent authorities, as Dr.
After all, we are not yet authorized to say positively that these periods are Ahaues, or that they are even embraced in or coincide with them; still, the oft- repeated five-character day columns, and troaano resulting groups of years, justify us in assuming that they do at least coincide with them.
I think, therefore, the evidence that the Ahaues at least began with a Cauac year is too strong to leave any doubt on this point. The only reason I see for any doubt as to the correctness of this conclusion is that on pages 62 and 63 we find similar figures troamo numeral characters for 16, 15, 17, and 19, numbers that cannot refer to the Ahaues.

A somewhat careful examination of Seflor Perez’s Cronologia Antigua Table XTI satisfies me that his whole scheme was based upon what he believed to be two established facts: If the grand cycle was divided into Abaues of twenty-four years each, as heretofore suggested, and as shown in the annexed table XVIIit follows that the one in which this event occurred must necessai-ily have been that which I have numbered XIII, as there is no other one in the entire grand cycle that has six years remaining after the year 4 Kan.
Documdnto it appears more than prob- able, judging by the contents of the. It was suggested, I belisve, by the Abbd Brasseur de Bourbourg. It is in reference to this period that we find the chief difference between authorities, because upon the proper determina- tion of its length, and the numbering, depends the possibility of identifying dates trooano the Maya calendar with corresponding ones of the Christian era.
The whole figure is therefore intended to indicate the close of an Documneto — when hroano more year has expired the light of another Ahau will be forever extinguished and the new one will begin its course.

But the growing interest in the public mind in reference to all that relates to the past history of our continent has induced me to present it myaa its present incomplete form rather than defer its publication to an indefinite period in the future. The figures around the central circle of 76 are probably intended to represent the marching years.
This advances actually to the level of the syllabic alphabet; but it is doubtful if there are any Aztec records entirely, or even largely, in this form of writing.
We also find that 8 Ahau of the year 11 Ix is the seventh day of the ninth month. In order to settle these points it is necessary not only to determine the length of the Ahau or Katun, but also the number of Katunes contained in the great cycle, the method in which they were numbered, and the proper position of these numbers in this long period.

Through this and other innovations, amate paper is one of the most widely available Mexican indigenous handicrafts, Amate paper has a long history. This gives us the following years: The Codex was discovered in Spain in the s, it was divided into two parts of differing sizes that were found in different locations, the Codex receives its alternate name of the Tro-Cortesianus Codex after the two parts that were separately discovered. I think we may therefore take for granted that there was some error in the calculation by which this author, or those from whom he quotes, obtained this date.
Dividing it into periods of twenty-four years will give this singular enumeration, while dividing it into periods of twenty years will not. My chief object, therefore, so far as the calendar is concerned, will be to settle if possible these disputed points; but will defer the discussion of these questions to a subsequent part of this paper, remarking only for the present that, accord- ing to all authorities, these Katunes were numbered as follows, and in the order here given: For the year 11 Cauac we must look to the Cauac column.
