Archaeology of Teotihuacan, Mexico
Type A consists of anthropomorphic figurines (Photo left:low left; Photo right). Sarabia divides this category into three subgroups based on the quality of retouching: thin figurines with high quality of retouching (type A1), roughly retouched robust figurines (type A2), and coarsely made figurines which appear to have been unfinished (type A3). Proportion of height to maximum width, thickness, and weight of these eccentrics supports his classification. Type B figurines have undulating profile bodies characteristic of representations of feathered serpents in Teotihuacan iconography (Photo left: right). The shape of all type B eccentrics found at the FSP is of the entire serpent body, from its opened mouth to its tail. They vary significantly in size. The shapes of type C figurines are clearly distinct from those previously mentioned (Photo left: upper left). They had been called simply eccentrics and often identified as lizards (Marquina 1922:190). They also look like anthropomorphic representations. However, Sugiyama believes that they were a combination of half feathered serpent and half projectile point.
Examples of Types A and B figurines were mainly concentrated in the central grave. They were located in specific areas in Grave 14. Many of them were found in three clusters near the center of the grave. Others were discovered dispersed in the southwestern section.
