Important Glyph Translation at Palenque
Researchers at the National Autonomous University of Mexico have deciphered the glyphs on the tomb of King Pakal at Palenque. It says “The House of the Nine Sharpened Spears.” The key was a glyph that looked like a jaguar molar which gave the connotation “edge” as in sharp edged spear. Pakal was born in 603 CE. On the wall are nine warriors with spears.
