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 tae be foond carved on the walls o the Temple o Inscriptions in Palenque an aa, whaur it functions as a base date frae which ither dates are computed.Wagner (2006, p. 281; ill.443 an aa).
