(Aztec Deity)METZTLI

Also known as MEZTLI, METZI, LOWLY God OF SNAILS

The Old Aztec Moon God.

Metztli carries a conch shell on his back so it's natural to assume this is where he got his alias 'Lowly God of Snails'. Not so. Apparently it represents the moon.

In an attempt to improve his slimy status Metztli accepted an invitation from the Gods to 'light up our world', but his cowardly nature allowed scabby God Nanautzin to jump in first and steal all the glory.

See Tecuciztecatl for more info.
