Notes

Alan Cole
Earthenware bowl, decorated with pseudoglyphs in red/terracotta/brown round upper row inside and spider monkeys on lower outside row.
The pseudoglyph pots appear only in the Late Classic period and were apparently used both by commoners and those in the elite, so it would appear that pseudoglyph pottery was universally stylish, not 'cheap imitations', even though the pseudoglyphs did not constitute writing. . 600-800 AD'
