Tortuguero - Costa Rica

Tortuguero (or El Tortuguero) is an archaeological site in Chiapas, Mexico which supported a Maya city during the Classic period. The site is noteworthy for its use of the B'aakal Emblem Glyph also found as the primary title at Palenque. The site has been heavily damaged by looting and modern development.Most of the surviving monuments of Tortuguero come from the reign of B'alam Ajaw ("Jaguar Lord") who ruled from 644 to 679. These record several victories over nearby states and may indicate that both his father and son were named Ik' Muuy Muwahn. Notes^ Martin and Grube (2000), p.165^ Zender
