PlayLords of the Night
In Mesoamerican calendars, the Lords of the Night are a set of nine gods that ruled over a particular night. The Lords of the Night were cyclical, so that same god recurred every nine nights. The Maya calendar also has nine Lords of the Night, though their specific names are unknown. The glyphs corresponding to the night gods are known and mayanist identify them with labels G1 to G9.
