I have proposed a merge, since some web sources indicate that Ah Kin is an alternative name-form for the same solar god as Kinich Ahau. However, I know very little about Mayan mythology, and hence cannot judge the validity of the web sources. Moreover, if the merge should be made, I don't know whether Ah Kin should be put as one alternative name in the beginning of the article ("true synonyms"), or whether instead e. g. the section Other gods with solar aspects should be enlarged with a section about Ah Kin ("partial overlap" or "subcase"). Someone with better knowledge and/or access to good written sources should decide, and perform the merge (if that is the decision).
I also should mention that one uninlogged user argued for redirecting Ah Kin to Maya priesthood, since (s)he had found a claim that Ah Kin was used as a priestly title; see Talk:Ah Kin#change to Redirect. JoergenB (talk) 19:13, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
- There is no point in the suggested merge. The Ah Kin article is a hodge-podge with one of the countless unreliable encyclopedias of religions, gods, etc. for a reference, and should better be deleted. I did, however, make a new section in the Kinich Ahau article to deal with the Ah K'in (and more specifically, Ah K'in Chob) question. Ah K'in, by the way, already redirects to Maya Priesthood.18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:35, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
