Los Nueve Señores de la Noche en función de Guardianes del Tiempo en los Códices Mesoamericanos
Siarkiewicz's article deals with the 260-day calendar in the ancient Mexico. The period of 260 days is designated by combining a cycle of 13 subsequent, differently named days with another cycle consisting of 20 distinct signs. She presents evidence that the 260-day calendar was combined with a 9 day cycle referred to as the nine Lords of Night. These 9 days were used to differentiate the 260 day cycle and as a basis for calculation of even larger cycles related to the 52-year cycle of New Fire ceremonies.
