Codex Colombino-Becker

The Codex Colombino is a part of a Mixtec codex held in the collection of the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. It is the only Mesoamerican codex that remains in Mexican territory. It deals with the genealogy, marriages and bellicose conquests of the Mixtec lord Eight Deer Jaguar Claw (fl. 11th century AD).

The other half of the Colombino Codex is known as "Becker I", and was purchased by Phillip Becker, a German collector, from the Aja-Villagómez family in Acatlán de Osorio, Puebla. It is currently in Vienna. For that reason, the entire codex often goes by the name Codex Colombino-Becker.
