The Aztec gods of the southern stars are the Centzonuitznaua.
According to the Manuscript of 1558, section 6, these 400 'Cloud-Serpents' were divinely slain [= transformed into stars] in this wise :- of 4 their protagonists,
- Quauhtli-icohuauh ('Eagle's Twin') "hid inside a tree";
- Mix-coatl ('Cloud Serpent') "hid within the earth";
- Tlo-tepetl ('Hawk Mountain') "hid within a hill";
- Apan-teuctli ('River Lord') "hid in the water";
- their sister, Cuetlach-cihuatl, "hid in the ball court."
From this ambuscade these 4 slew the 400.
