Ixtlilton (Nahuatl: Ixtlilton pronounced [iʃˈtɬiɬton],The Little Black One) in aztec mythology is the god of medicine and healing, and therefore was often alluded to as the brother of Macuilxochitl, the god of well-being or good luck. Ixtlilton was a gentle god, who emanated from an obsidian mask which brought darkness and peaceful sleep to children in their beds at night.
