Aztec Calendar > Gods and deities > Centeotl
Centeotl is the son of Tlazolteotl. His female partner is the maize goddess Chicomecoatl ("Seven Snake").
In Aztec mythology, maize (Cintli in Nahuatl) was brought to this world by Quetzalcoatl. It is associated with the group of stars today commonly known as the pleiades.
In the tonalpohualli, Centeotl is the Lord of the Day for days with number 7 (chicome in Nahuatl). He is the fourth Lord of the Night.
