1. ORIGINAL PARIS CODEX: pp.23-24. The sequence of thirteen figures was misinterpreted by Severin (1981,) who identified only Kan/Tzab as Taurus/Pleiades, and misread the other twelve, misnaming several. The alternation from Band 1 to Band 2, confirmed by Calderon, is shown by Mayans as a horizontal band with zig-zag lines on both pages, above the lower row of pictographs.


2A. RECONSTRUCTION(cf. Harleston, Jr., Hugh, El Zodiaco Maya, Editorial Diana, Mexico, D.F., 1991,'92, '93.) This drawing was traced over the original Codex. Eroded figures were deduced by Calderon. Computer scanner study (Harleston) confirmed missing Kutz (Scorpio) and Keh (Virgo), with a part of Pek (Aries) as the correct entering figure. Numerical glyphs read from right to left, the reverse of other Codices, as 28 days times 13 = 364-day stellar year. After 1,820 days the tables repeat. See Table for sequences. Accuracy in 128 years is 365.2422 days (compared with NASA's 365.242199.days.) Calderon suggested reversed tables were read in the dark with mirrors. Harleston ('91) suggested a laser depth measure of original (see arrows) may find faint indentations to futher confirm Kutz and Keh. A spectographic laser (non-destructive) could check paint mixtures for traces of fireflies that may have made the Tables glow in the dark.









3. ZODIAC CIRCLE: (El Zodiaco Maya, op cit) shows celestial circle with hours of Right Ascension and degrees from Vernal Equinox, the sun today in Balam (Pisces.) Ten figures and/or glyphs were identified at Teotihuacan. Positions of solstices and zenital crossings (May 19 and July 25) appear for Teotihuacan. Equinoxes are shown for 179 B.C. and 3,960 A.D., when vernal equinox sunrise will be centered in Coz (Aquarius,) in which it will enter approximately 2,850 A.D.

Am is the black widow spider (Orion, with red nebula M-42 on its belly.) Itzamna is the sea serpent, whose "eye" is red giant Antares, part of which Greeks named "Scorpio." These two are not on the Zodiac (path of earth's orbit around the sun.)
