Jon's Country of Math
The Ancient Aztec Calender has many different designs to tell the month, the day, and the year. The top rectangular shaped elemnets represent 13Acatl orThirteen Reed. They say that it represents the date upon which the Aztec Calender was made. They started to times all the numbers that represent the shapes together. 4 x 29 x 49 x 8 x 26 = 665600 after they got that number they used the Maya Companion number to get the number 1366560. The one thing that remains to be computed is the 13 Acatl number but someone would already visualize the symbolic math of the 1366560 day count number on the Aztec Calender.
