          Abstract

          A mediados del siglo XV d.C., un rico enlosado se extendía al pie del Templo Mayor de Tenochtitlan, justo en frente de su fachada principal. Relacionadas principalmente con los mitos y ritos relativos a Tlaltecuhtli, Tláloc y Huitzilopochtli, dichas losas serán objeto de estudio en el presente artículo. El análisis de este conjunto escultórico recientemente exhumado por el Proyecto Templo Mayor (INAH) intenta dar nuevas luces sobre las funciones y los significados del espacio ceremonial que ha sido identificado con el coaxalpan.

          Translated abstract

          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 associated 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.
