Stela 4

Copan: Stela 4 [January 9, 2004]

This is the name glyph for 18-Rabbit-God-K, otherwise known as Waxaklahun-Ubah-K'awil. The left side of the glyph consists of the bar and dot notation for the number 18, where bars represent the number five and dots represent one. The rabbit is on the right, with the flaming axe of K'awil in his forehead. Note the remnants of paint still clinging to the inscription.
