    Hi David, Can you tell me what is the meaning of the word “Maya” and if there is a glyph for it? Thanks.

    Dear David,

    I wonder what do you think about glyphs pC3 and pD3 from the Block C? I see (another possibility is ). Thus. it describes Jannab Ti’ ‘O’ as a vassal (or warlord) of Calakmul king.

      Sorry for the long time in replying! I’m not sure what your idea is, Dmitri — is something missing in your comment? — but Block C does indeed seem to describe a vassal (y-ajaw) relationship with Yuknoom Ch’een. This idea is mentioned also in Simon and Dorie’s paper on that looted Hixwitz block.
