Notes:
Discovered in 1790 during excavations in the main square in Mexico City, the stone is housed in the National Anthropology Museum there. It may have borne some similarity to a disc housed at Casa Alvarado (MX026), visited on the GCA tour, and hence the reason for this image's inclusion in the Mexico trip series.
