CT writes re tlapohual: Which calendar does this indicate. Notice the strange formation : xiuhtlapohualli, not xiuhpohualli. Is it referring specifically to the four year counters, i.e. the symbols?
I think xiuhtlapohual refers the the 365 calendar.It is a bit of an odd phrasing. This section is confusing, but the next two folios explain it. the 52 year period is being divided it into 4 sections. 13 acatl ends the section beginning 1 acatl. 13 calli the section 1 calli, etc. This is elegant because the sections run like perfect trecenas, counting years instead of days.
