Quirigua: Stela D

Quirigua: Stela D, also called Monument 4, North Side [January 8, 2004]

"The next coefficien, 16, is depicted by a figure with a fleshless jaw (symbolizng the number 10) and an assumed cross in the eye, now weathered (to symbolize the number 6), lying on his back, and gazing upwards at the katun figure above.

The 15 tuns are represented by another figure with a fleshless jaw (number 10) and a headdress symbolizing the number 5, seated in a manner very similar to the baktun coefficient, and holding the tun symbol in his lap."
