CHAPTER [16] [p.630]

[Submission to Colhuacan.]

When all the aforesaid had taken place, the Mexicans who had been in hiding among the canebrakes and herbage were driven out by the great hunger they felt, and came to Culuacan to seek for food; and they told the people of that place when they reached there that they had come to serve them, that they should not slay them, and they prayed to Vchilogos, for him to give his orders that they should not be put to death; and they gave to the men of Culuacan the plume and the staff of Vchilogos, and remained in their service. In these days Achitomel was lord of Culuacan, and Chalchiutlatonac the chieftain, and they had a very fine temple in which the people of Culuacan celebrated a feast to Çiguacoatl, 46 the wife of the god of the infernal regions, whom the people of Culuacan reverenced as their especial god.
