Painal

Painal as depicted in the Florentine Codex.

In Aztec religion, Painal (also spelled Paynal or Painalton, "Little Painal"; also spelled Paynalton; Classical Nahuatl: Payīnal , Payīnaltōn, Payīnaltzin) was a god (teotl) who served as a representative of Huitzilopochtli.

Paynal was "the delegate," "the substitute," "the deputy," because he represented Uitzilopchtli. When there was a procession he was given the name Paynal, because they pressed him on quickly; he was made to hasten. phrase
