Such a technique is qualitative and indirect because it does not actually 14 Geoffrey E. Braswell measure the amount of water adsorbed by an obsidian artifact. Virtually all aspects of these dates have been questioned. First – and fundamentally important – obsidian, just like ceramics, is highly subject to erosion. The technique should not be employed where there is a strong likelihood that obsidian hydration rinds are subject to significant weathering, as suggested by ceramic erosion at Copan (Braswell 2003).

What we know about the lords of the Kingdom of the Avocado (the ancient name of Pusilha) is derived from public texts erected by rulers in order to celebrate their actions, ancestry, and legitimacy. The reigns of two additional rulers cannot be precisely determined, a third can be placed in time but has a name that is thoroughly illegible, and a fourth did not employ the emblem glyph of Pusilha. Two of the kings of Pusilha used a paramount title seen only at the greatest of all Maya cities. Beyond the range of historical texts (ad 571–798), legendary individuals who lived in ad 81 and ad 159 are discussed.

The technique should not be employed where there is a strong likelihood that obsidian hydration rinds are subject to significant weathering, as suggested by ceramic erosion at Copan (Braswell 2003). This is because eroded rinds yield late hydration dates. Second, the interpretation of the phenomenon observed by the qualitative optical approach has been challenged (Anovitz et al. 1999); it is almost certainly a Schlieren line representing not a hydration boundary but an inflection point where water concentration declines at a maximum rate.
