Stela H

Copan: Stela H [January 9, 2004]

"The text records the erection of Stela H, gives its proper name, and identifies its owner as Waxaklahun-Ubah-K'awil. The date, 9.14.19.5.0 (December 5, 731), is exactly nineteen tropical years after the erection of Stela C, and four k'atuns after Stela 3, the pivotal stela in K'ak'-Nab-K'awil's monument program. Waxaklahun-Ubah-K'awil's motivation in choosing this date was to have the stars and the Milky Way in exactly the same positions as they were on the dates when Stelae 3 and C were erected."
