Table 12.16. Dresden codex serpent number bases and dates: Base of calculation is 9 Kan 12 Kayab. From this base, it is 4.6.9.15.12.19 to 13 Akbal 1 Kankin. Schulz and Satterthwaite believe this corresponds to the L.C. 10.6.10.6.3 13 Akbal 1 Kankin, attested elsewhere in Dresden. By this interpretation, 13.0.0.0.0 4 Ahau 8 Cumku, the base of the usual Maya era, becomes 3.16.3.5.6.16 4 Ahau 8 Cumku from the 9Kan 12 Kayab base. The number 3.16.19.9.14.0 equals 584 CR, which would be 6 CR later. If this was accepted as equating with the base of the normal Mayan era, all Long Count positions in the tables below would be moved back by 6 CR. This is a reasonable possible alternative to the Satterthwaite placement. Smiley's attempt to move the dates in varying ways seems to me unrealistic; the dates must be moved as a block.
