The significance of this day

4 Atl is an evil day sign. It offered one only misery. He who was then born nowhere was content. He lived only harassed and struggling for the necessities of life. And if perchance something were his reward, just like water it passed by, carried away and scattered by the current. (Florentine Codex, Dibble and Anderson, bks 4-5, page 38)
