This template shows the maya stella corresponding to a specific date. Gregorian, julian and maya dates can be given.


Examples[edit]

The corresponding stellae of the following examples are at the end of the text.

  • For today's stela, no parameter is necessary (shown at right): {{Maya stela}}
  • Other gregorian date: {{Maya stela|2010|1|30}} (Stella A1)
  • For obtaining the stela for maya date 12.19.17.1.4 write: {{Maya stela|12|19|17|1|4}} (Stella A2)


  • The GMT correlation is used by default. Other correlation number must be given as a fourth parameter. This parameter could be a number or a code for the correlation (see Template:Maya Correlation)
Using a number for the correlation: {{Maya stela|2010|1|30|584283}} (Stela A3)
Using the code, GMT as example: {{Maya stela|2010|1|30|GMT}} (Stela A4)
  • For inserting dates is the Julian calendar insert a special keyword (Cal=J).
{{Maya stela|2010|1|17|Cal=J}} (Stella A5)
  • The dates before Christ are counted astronomically by default, i.e 1BC=0, 2BC=-1...., but the BC convention can be used with the keyword Era=BC. The following entries produce the same stella:
{{Maya stela|-3113|8|11}} (Stella B1)
{{Maya stela|3114|8|11|Era=BC}} (Stella B2)
  • There is some discussion if a piktun corresponds to 13 or 20 baktuns. The value of 20 baktuns is used by default. The value of 13 baktuns can be chosen by inserting a special keyword (Pik=13). The following entries for December 21st, 2012 do not produce the same stella (13.0.0.0.0 and 0.0.0.0.0):
{{Maya stela|2012|12|21}} (Stella C1)
{{Maya stela|2012|12|21|Pik=13}} (Stella C2)

Limitations[edit]

The ISIG glyphs are not operational because is difficult to find examples for these glyphs in the public domain.

The stelas A1 to A5 correspond to January 30th, 2010/12.19.17.1.4. Stelas B1 and B2 correspond to August 11, 3114 BC/0.0.0.0.0. Stelas C1 and C2 correspond to December 21st, 2012 which corresponds to 13.0.0.0.0 or to 0.0.0.0.0 depending on the definition of a piktun.
