Late Classic (600 - 900 AD)
INAH. Zona Arqueológica de Edzná, Campeche
The upper left part of this stela shows an inscription that records the date as September 17,726. In addition to his elaborate garb, the figure carried a sort of three-pelated battle club in his left hand and in his right, a manikin scepter depicting God K’awiil. These objects bear witness to his high military rank and his political, economic, and religious authority.
