In the middle of the 15th century, a magnificent pavement extended from the foot of the Great Temple of Tenochtitlan, directly in front of the main façade. Primarily related to myths and rites associ- ated with Tlaltecuhtli, Tlaloc, and Huitzilopochtli, these stones reliefs will be examined in this article. The analysis of this group of sculptures recently excavated by the Great Temple Project (INAH) will provide a new understanding regarding the functions and meanings of this ceremonial space identified as the coaxalpan.
