Ahulane

Ahulane In Mayan mythology, archer god, portrayed holding an arrow. Ahulane was worshipped on the island of Cozumel, where his cult was connected with warfare, as were those of Ah Chuy Kay, the fire destroyer; Hun Pic Tok, who carried 8,000 spears; Kac-u-Pacat, who carried a shield of fire; and Ah Cun Can, the serpent charmer. Many of these names may have a purely symbolic connection with war and may not be the names of separate deities.
