Glyphs identifying the Palenque ruler K'an Joy Chitam I from the hieroglyphic platform in Temple XIX. From the left, the cross-symbol is read as K'AN, the animal is a peccary or CHITAM, and the textile encircling its head and knotted on top is JOY. (This used to be called the "tooth-ache glyph.) The glyph block on the right, containing the skull variant of the Palenque emblem glyph, is translated "Divine Palenque Lord". The mystery of this early Palenque king appearing on a monument of the late Palenque ruler K'inich Ahkal Mo' Nahb' III is one that we hope to penetrate this season.
