Chapter, First Group General Inspection Auca Camayoc
Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala
The author explains that there were ten paths for men to follow in the Inca Empire based on age division. The first path is of the auca camayoc [master of war], brave warriors who entered their service at twenty-five years old and ended at fifty years old and fought for the emperor. The man depicted in the image is labelled as auca camayoc. There are words written at the bottom right side of the image which reads “de edad de treynta y tres anos” which translates to “thirty-three years old.” The words written in the bottom left corner of the image reads “balente moso yndio tributario” which translates to “brave young Indian tributary.” The young man depicted in the image is illustrated holding a decapitated head of an enemy in his right hand and a shield in his left.

This manuscript was not a published work, which is why the year and locale of creation is approximated. The author did not use a foliation method of numbering the pages, but rather a modern paging system. He begins his first page on fol. 1v instead of fol. 1r. The “Image Placement” will indicate the method in which the author numbered his pages, however the “Physical Location” will be indicated using the foliation system.
