Solicitud de favores...y dones para los dioses

Muchos pueblos mesoamericanos acostumbraban colocar ofrendas tanto para clausurar un edificio, como para construirlo; y este es el caso de una ofrenda encontrada aquí para consagra una nueva edificación.Los arqueólogos encontraron en 1998 una gran cista o caja de piedra (hecha de sillares de cantera rosa) con diversos objetos en su interior: un carapacho de tortuga utilizado como teponaxtle (tambor), objetos de madera a manera de cetros con forma de serpiente y una "mariposa" articulada que se asocian con el culto a Tláloc. También se encontraron numerosos cuchillos de obsidiana y pedernal, espinas de maguey para auto sacrificios, trozos de copal (resina aromática) y una cuenta de piedra verde al centro de la caja. Para fortalecer la nueva construcción del Templo Mayor también se colocaron dos cráneos humanos con sus vertebras cervicales.
