MAYAN DAY SIGNS:
These glyphs represent the 20 religious calendar days of the Mayan 260-day sacred calendar. Translations are archaic and uncertain to me.
The day-sign icons whose names end in 01 were adapted from the Codex Dresden, via Frederick Peterson (Ref.1). The icons ending in 02 are the more inscriptional forms, as might be found on monuments or stelae; these are adapted from (Ref.2).
MONTH SIGNS:A few "month" signs (primarily from Ref. 3):
Ref. 1. Peterson F. Ancient Mexico. New York, Capricorn, 1959, page 187.
