Piedras Negras Panel 3: Some thoughts on spoken words

Abstract: In this article I present one possible reading of the spoken texts on Piedras Negras Panel 3. I suggest that these record a conversation between the young lords arriving from Yaxchilan and the Piedras Negras ruler about the banquet which was organized by an ancestor from Yaxchilan. Also, I propose that the BAT.T528 sign was read as ch’u in the Late Classic period which is productive in various contexts.

Resumen: En este artículo presento una lectura posible de los varios textos de discurso directo en Tablero 3 de Piedras Negras. Propongo que es una conversación entre los príncipes de Yaxchilan y el gobernante de Piedras Negras sobre la banqueta que fue organizada de un antepasado de Yaxchilan. También propongo que la lectura del signo MURCIELAGO.T528 era ch’u en el Clásico Tardío que es productivo en varios contextos.
