The author cosistently places the "A.D." (for "anno domini," i.e., "the year of our Lord") after the number, instead of in front, where it belongs.

Nicknamed "Reptile Head"

Somehow I think they may have mistaken common graffiti for a historical engraving.

Kohkaj nicknamed “Reptile Head”! Intriguingly, the ruler’s name and description suggest Kojak - like authority figure. Could Odysseus have sailed past the Pillars of Hercules then turned South with Agamemnon’s Greek cops in pursuit?

Although the ruins are not in very good condition (compared to Palenque and other Mayan sites), the view looks spectacular!

This site hasn’t been “conserved”, which is really just another way of saying “get it ready for tourists”. :’)

He got within sight of Ithaca, then his idiot crew opened the bag, and the winds blew him to the Americas. It’s right in the book, geez! ;’)

The inventors of Klingon had to get their ideas from somewhere. Y’know, since they can’t think of their own. ;’)

What you write is true. Certainly isn’t Chichen Itza.

My attention to the site’s condition was first drawn by the small size of the building stones and the badly deteriorated state of the ruins (no pun intended). Of course, that may also have something to do with the spectacular view. You only get that view from the hilltop and with the hilltop comes being more exposed to the weather and the increased difficulty of getting really big stones up there.

Given how many times they defeated Palenque in war, maybe there is some sort of Central American version of Sparta vs Athens going on. That is, Sparta invested very heavily in military prowess and its ruins today are unimpressive. By contrast, Athens suffered defeats but the Acropolis...
