Patio 1 Sign - Mitla - 2001

It reads:

There was a bad fire in this quadrangle, probably at the beginning of the Colonial period, which left a cover of ash approximately a meter deep. The archaeological evacuation of the courtyard and its rooms also revealed the existence of dividing walls in the prehispanic rooms. It is assumed that the original facades of these rooms were covered with friezes of trees, similar to design of those of the North Group. Pieces of mural paint can be seen on the lintels.
