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.
