Maya ruler of Yaxchilan. Reigned >564>.
The only data point we have for this king king — indeed for Yaxchilan in the years between 537 and 613 — is that he captured a lord of Lacanha in 564. We know this because the capture is mentioned by the later ruler Itzamnaaj Bahlam II in connection with a Lacanha capture of his own.
The foregoing is based on Chronicle of the Maya Kings and Queens by Simon Martin and Nikolai Grube (2008:121, 124). The authors cite Carolyn Tate (1992). The 613 date is that of the bady eroded Stela 2, with a likely date of 184.108.40.206.0 (May 9, 613) (Martin and Grube (2008:121, citing Peter Mathews 1997).
