63 years after the discovery of the tomb of the Mayan king Pakal, inside the Temple of Inscriptions of Palenque, in Chiapas, the researcher Guillermo Bernal Romero, from the Mayan Studies Center of the National University of Mexico, has managed to decipher the hieroglyph that was in it.
The riddle has been solved studying different elements of the Mayan universe like the jaguar, analyzing the skull and observing its teeth. In this way, the researcher has related the information to the hieroglyphs and has determined that it is a schematic representation of the upper part of the jaguar's molar.
Researcher Bernal Romero explained that with the hieroglyph it has been possible to know the full name of the tomb of King Pakal and that the discovery represents a new line of research to learn more about the life of the Mayans. It is important to note that there are about 500 Mayan hieroglyphs, of which 80% are deciphered.
The announcement of this discovery is part of the celebrations of the 45th anniversary of the founding of the Center for Mayan Studies of the Autonomous University of Mexico.
