The significance of this day

And Three Reed, and Four Ocelot, Five Eagle, Six Vulture, Seven Motion, Eight Flint Knife, Nine Rain, Ten Flower, Eleven Crocodile, Twelve Wind, Thirteen House: these were all the group of day signs. However, all were as their account told elsewhere. But they were so regarded as they went arranged in their order as [is told] in their separate accounts. There the third place was mentioned as good, and [others] evil. (Florentine Codex, Dibble and Anderson, bk 4, page 82)
