This is one of the many provincial maps contained in Aztec Imperial Strategies. It shows the provinces along the central section of the Aztec/Tarascan border. The city-states in the strategic province of Temazcaltepec were responsible for controlling the Tarascan frontier, whereas those in the tributary provinces of Ocuilan, Malinalco, and Tlachco were responsible for making regular tribute payments to the imperial capitals. Descriptions of these provinces, including extensive data tables, are found in Appendix 4 of the book.
