Excerpt: The Aztec calendar stone, Mexica sun stone, or Stone of the Sun (Spanish: ), is a large monolithic sculpture that was excavated in the Zócalo, Mexico City's main square, on December 17, 1790. Measuring about 3.6 metres (12 ft) in diameter, 1.22 metres (4 ft) in thickness and weighing 24 tons, the original basalt version is presently on display at the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City's Chapultepec Park. Images from the Sun Stone appear on the reverse of Mexican peso coins of all denominations. Because of the carved hieroglyphs, with the names of the days and the cosmogonic suns, it was first incorrectly identified as a calendar stone . Actually it has been a "temalacatl" , a round stone utilized to tie captive warriors in gladiatorial sacrifices. León y Gama, Antonio de.
