New Glyphic Appellatives of the Rain God

P. 351-371.
Beliaev D., Davletshin A., Vepretskii S.

In this paper we present evidence for previously unknown appellatives of the Rain God: K’ahk’ Hoplaj Chan Chaahk, K’ahk’ Hoplaj Chan Yopaat and K’ahk’ Mison Chaahk. These names describe aspects of the Rain God related to meteorological phenomena, such as lightning and hurricanes. We also provide arguments for the readings of two new logograms HOP (‘burn’) and KAMIS (‘centipede’).
