I opened this book and was confused. Why was I looking at "Amphitheater at Itálica" (p.60)? Where was the Aztec Pantheon represented in the title?

This books does have an onyx sculpture of Huitzilopochtli and a Spanish version said to be Huitzilopochtli from Sahagún (p.67), but other Spanish representations would have added much about this interesting god (I know from literature searches that for some reason Aztec representations of Huitzilopochtli have not survived).

I loved "The Conquest of Mexico" two-page spread.

Visually this exhibit must have been absolutely exquisite. As a book the exhibit and text fall short because I think the book name does not truly represent the contents.

Have been a fan of Dr. Pohl's for a while now. i have read and reread his books countless times. I am a big fan of mesoamerica and Dr.Pohl has a nice style thats easy to follow. Had the pleasure of meeting him years back.
