Mayan Month Glyphs

Constellation band

These are the glyphs for the months of the haab, also known as the vague year, since the 365-day period was allowed to drift with the seasons. I show several different versions and sizes here. I use the new orthography, but show the old orthography in parentheses after the new one.
