Aztec God

Creator of Astrology

If CIPACTLI is a crocodile, you might expect the similar-sounding CIPACTONAL to be another Croc God.

But not at all. He is in fact a very resourceful sorcerer. Together with his wife OXOMOCO (nothing to do with beef cubes) they invented Astrology and Calendars.

They also helped QUETZALCOATL to move a mountain and sorted out famine relief with their Dig for Victory food campaigns.
