And, finally, here are the stairs up to Temple XX-A. According to Cross Group Project epigrapher David Stuart, the glyphic texts in Temple XIX make reference to three temples, each one dedicated to a member of the Palenque Triad. One building is Temple XIX. Based on the striking similarities of its newly discovered sculptural program, Temple XXI is another. And according to Stuart, Temple XX-A emerges as a strong candidate for the third.
