Posted in Maya  by antiques

giving-alphabet-letters-to-mayan-godsALPHABET-GODS: In the early days of archeological exploration, when glyphs and codices were still a complete mystery, no-one had a clue what the God’s names were. So for administration purposes, they were identified by letters of the alphabet.

“This is a picture of God A, and underneath is God B. Please insert God C into Slot D and connect to God E using the tool provided.”

This Godly A-┬Čto-Z was first compiled by Paul Schellhas in 1904, with various revisions appearing over the years. As more information came to light, Godologists were gradually able to work out the names of each God. But the A-to-Z system is still in use today so we’ve incorporated it thus:

God A: AH-PUCH
God A’: KAM
God B: CHAC
God C: XAMAN-EK
God CH: XBALANQUE
God D: ITZAMNA
God E: YUM-KAAX
God F: BULUC-CHABTAN
God G: KINICH-AHAU
God H: CHICCAN
God I: Anonymous Goddess of Love
God J: Er, try XBALANQUE
God K: BOLON-TZAKAB
God L: VOTAN
God M: EK-CHUAH
God N: UAYEB
God O: IXCHEL
God P: FROG-GOD
God Q: ETZNAB
God R: BULUK-KAB
God S: HUNAHPU
God T: No takers
God U: God-U-Like? Could be BOLON-TZAKAB
God V: Vanished?
God W: Where?
God Y: EK-ZIP
God Z: AH-TZUL — www.godchecker.com
