Structure N10-9 is also known as the "Temple of the Jaguar Masks" because of a pair of distinctive masks flanking the central stair. The precise placement of these masks on the lowest level of the pyramid can be seen in the previous photo. These masks were part of the Early Classic structure, and were later covered by a Late Classic modification in the 7th or 8th century A.C.
