Xilonen In Aztec mythology, goddess of the growing corn, whose festival, Uei Tecuilhuitl
(22 June), was celebrated with corn tortillas wrapped around pieces of spiced vegetables and baked. She was one of the wives of Tezcatlipoca. Some scholars regard Xilonen as an aspect of the great goddess Coatlicue.
