Mountain Cow (MCW)
Site code MCW given by Corpus of Maya Hieroglyphic Inscriptions (1975:23-24; 1982:185-187; 1999:187-189; 2012; 2016); cited by Riese (2004), Mathews (2005). Alternative name ‚Tzimin Tunich‘ according to Riese (2004), alternative name ‘Tzimin Kax’ according to Mayer (1997:16) after an architectural group, sometimes also referred to by other architectural compounds of the cluster as ‚Haatzcab Ceel‘, ‚Cahal Cunil‘, or ‚Cahal Pichik‘. The latter is connected via a causeway with Caracol (Grube & Martin 2004:79).
Location unverified, approximate coordinates after the map in Chase & Chase (2007: fig. 4). Google Maps Web Services (accessed October 12, 2015) locates a clearing nearby, which could be Mountain Cow Camp (Morris 2004: fig. 2). Morris (2004: 129) provides N 16°47′00″ W 89°00′00″ as the coordinates, which seems far too east and unprecise.
