LOPEZ LUJAN, Leonardo et al. A Passageway into the Underworld: Animal Offerings buried at the foot of the Great Temple of Tenochtitlan. Estud. cult. náhuatl [online]. 2012, vol.44, pp.9-40. ISSN 0071-1675.

This article analyzes the faunal remains recovered in Offering 125, a ritual deposit found to the west of the Tlaltecuhtli monolith. Taxonomic identification of the zoological species and the areas of origin will shed light on the regions that were within the sphere of access of the Triple Alliance during the reign of Ahuitzotl.

Keywords : Mexica; Basin of Mexico; Tenochtitlan; sacred precinct; Great Temple; animals; offerings.
