Resumen

BIRO, Péter. Politics in the Western Maya Region (II): Emblem Glyphs. Estud. cult. maya [online]. 2012, vol.39, pp. 31-66. ISSN 0185-2574.

In a series of articles I reflect on the use of various expressions which are connected to what we call the political in the inscriptions of the Classic Maya Western Region. These words express ideas and concepts which help to understand the intricate details of the interactions between the political entities and their internal organisations in the Classic Maya Lowlands. In this article I investigate the meaning of emblem glyphs. I suggest that originally they were toponyms but later on they became titles of origin which indicated descendance from a common origin place.

Palabras llave : Classic Maya; epigraphy; political vocabulary; emblem glyphs.
