It is dated to AD 1503 and marks the ascension of the last crowned Aztec ruler before the Spanish conquest.
The glyphs call upon the creative and destructive forces of the universe, embodied in various gods and natural elements. The two middle glyphs represent rain and power, the jaguar being associated with water since the time of the Olmecs. The cross at the apex refers to the end of the Fifth Age of the Sun through movement, and the lowest glyph gives the date of '11 Reed'.
Fifteen years after this stone was carved the expansion of the Aztec culture was halted by the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadors, and the stone's prediction of catastrophe did indeed come to pass.
