Pier E, Temple of the Inscriptions [January 1, 2004]

On Pier E, a jaguar helmet [a] with snake teeth designates Kan-Balam I, the great-great-grandfather and namesake of the child.

Schele & Mathews, The Code of Kings, p. 99

NOTE: The base of Pier E is shown in b. When we were in Palenque in January of 2004 the Temple of the Inscriptions was closed, so all these photos were taken with high optical zoom from below in the plaza and therefore cannot show the pedestals on which the figures stand.
