This is a god sitting cross-legged over astronomical signs of the sun, the moon, Venus and Mars. He wears a lavish headdress from which an elephant-like head puts its trunk into a cup he holds in his hand.

Regarding the glyphs above him, we know only that the bottom glyph in first column is the symbol for God C.

Villacorta sees the sign of Venus as the second glyph in the second row and the third glyph in the third row as the sign of God E, Uumkaax, god of Agriculture, especially corn.
