Analytical study of the only colonial pictographic documents known of the region. A collection of transcriptions dated 1690 of the Nahuatl oral tradition of the real or mythic peregrination and founding the city of Cuauhtla and an oil canvas dated 1740 that reinterprets the events registered in the transcriptions. Time, negligence and ill treatment have caused the disappearance, in both cases, of glosses, numbers and texts in Nahuatl.
