Turtle Tooth


Who is Turtle Tooth?

Turtle Tooth was the third king of Mayan city-state Piedras Negras in Guatemala. He is also known as Ah Cauac Ah K'in. He was a successor of Ruler B.

The first mention of Turtle Tooth comes in the inscriptions of Yaxchilan when one of his sublords is captured by Knot-eye Jaguar I. However, it is likely that Piedras Negras had gained some degree of ascendancy over Yaxchilan.

It is possible that he is depicted on Panel 2.

His successor was Piedras Negras Ruler C. He could be his son.
