VELASQUEZ GARCIA, Erik. Lords of a political entity: 'Ik'. Estud. cult. maya [online]. 2009, vol.34, pp.45-89. ISSN 0185-2574.

This article is the first attempt to reconstruct the 'Ik' dynasty that has been published. At 1973, the emblem glyph of 'Ik' politic was associated by Joyce Marcus with the archaeological site of Motul San Jose, seated near Chaltunhá or Peten Itza lake. Since then, various archaeological and epigraphic data have been suported the hypothesis that 'Ik' politic had its seat at the Peten area, although his first known capital was possibly located at Bejucal. At the same way, we see the posibility that more than one dignitary had ported simultaneously the emblem glyph of 'Ik', because it was a regional title used by different cities of the same state. This research identified two 'Ik' rulers of the Early Classic, seven or eight of the Late Classic, and one or two of the Last Classic, although in the vessels produced in the region there are other dignitaries' names which are difficult to understand or without dates of Calendar Round. A significant contribution of the text consist in identifying the archeological sites in Peten, Petexbatún and Usumacinta with which the lordship of 'Ik' had very diverse relationsips.
