Notes: It is the only Pre-Columbian codex preserved in Mexico that is of Mixtec origin and addresses issues related to land and genealogy before the Spanish arrived. It became a written map that served of title to safeguard the lands belonging to the lordship of Tuttepec at the time of the Spanish conquest. Manuel Hermann Lejarazu researcher says that the document was acquired in 1891 by a group of historians gathered at the request of Porfírio Diaz to commemorate the fourth centenary of the discovery of America. Until the 20th century it was considered to be religious and calendric in nature. It is now known that it covers the life success of the ruler called 8-Venado, Garra de Jaguar. It is the authentic biography of one of the most important Pre-Hispanic Mixteca rulers. This codex along with the Códice Becker I, located in Vienna make for one manuscript that were separated during the colonial period.
