Abstract: Apostolides describes the rock art found in the caves, boulders, and rocks around Chalcatzingo. He does not attempt to interpret the pictographs beyond a few more elaborate ones that seem to have been influenced by Teotihuacan. The paintings may date anywhere from the Middle Formative to the Postclassic period, with only a few paintings that can be shown to date from the Classic period.
