A fact from this article appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the "Did you know?" column on March 12, 2010.
The text of the entry was: Did you know ... that the royal dynasty at the great Maya city of Copán (fragment pictured) in Honduras was founded by a warrior sent from the distant city of Tikal?

Temple 11 and Reviewing StandEdit

Would it be possible to add information about the builder of Temple 11 and the Reviewing Stand and its rattle-shaking guardians? These are among the most conspicuous sculptures of the ruins!77.162.130.139 (talk) 12:59, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

This would be Structure 10L-11, which is already summarised in the article text here (where it is mentioned that the structure is believed to originally have been the palace of Yax Pasaj Chan Yopaat). Although a little more detail could be added here, a dedicated article would probable be needed in order to go into the specifics of this building (something along the lines of Tikal Temple I or Tikal Temple V).

Work of Copan iconographersEdit

Shouldn't the publications by Taube and Baudez on the iconography of Copan somehow be referred to, or at least be mentioned in the references?

Link short citations to long citationsEdit

It is more difficult than necessary to look up a long citation from a short citation. Why not link them using an appropriate {{harv}} template? -- PBS (talk) 07:56, 8 April 2017 (UTC)

You're welcome to add them. All the best, Simon Burchell (talk) 11:19, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Done. But in doing so there were two sources in the references section that were not cited. I am moving them here so that if they are cited in the future, they can be included

I've dropped both of these into a new "Further reading" section. Simon Burchell (talk) 12:43, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
There were two citations that only have short citations with no long citations to back them up:
  1. "Adam Risius 1999." Revision as of 17:42, 12 October 2010 by 71.58.118.73
  2. "Nicholas Hellmuth and Francis Robicsek, 1972." Revision as of 17:49, 12 October 2010 by 71.58.118.73
Neither of these facts seem to have been copied from elsewhere in Wikipedia and the authors seem to be involved in research of the topic. So the facts that the citations support are probably correct, but nevertheless full citations are required. -- PBS (talk) 09:04, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
Well done. Neither of these seemed crucial, and I've cut them both. Simon Burchell (talk) 12:40, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
For those who don't know: When looking up old insertions into an article (as I did for "Adam Risius 1999") WikiBlame speeds the process up from very time consuming to moderately time consuming. -- PBS (talk) 15:06, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
