Inca Mythology

APOCATEQUIL

Inca Lightning God

Also known as APACATEQUIL, APOTEQUIL

Inca God of Lightning

He’s also chief priest for the Moon God. An obvious case of moonlighting. To keep him happy, statues of his noble self were erected upon the mountaintops.

His dad was GUAMANSURI and there was a twin brother called PIGUERAO. We also think he was in partnership with ILLAPA the God of Thunder. He may also be related to CATEQUIL, or even CATEQUIL himself.
