Note that Houston 1989 mistakenly writes "3113 BC" (when "-3113" is meant), an Miller an Taube 1993's mention o "2 August" is a (presumed) erratum. The Long Count b'ak'tun date o this stairtin pynt (220.127.116.11.0) is repeated, for the first time in a span o approximately 5,125 solar years. The significance o this period-endin tae the pre-Columbian Meya themselves is unclear, an there is an incomplete inscription (Tortuguero Monument 6) that records this date. It is an aa tae be foond carved on the walls o the Temple o Inscriptions in Palenque, whaur it functions as a base date frae which ither dates are computed.Wagner (2006, p. 281; an aa ill.443).
