The god of travellers, merchants and commerce, Yacatecuhtli was the protector of Pochtecas, the merchants. The merchants would place an effigy of the god from walking sticks and in turn, Yacatecuhtli would protect their precious goods from thieves. His symbol was the cross in order to represent the roads that the merchands travel. His other name, Zacazontli (the god of roads) was usually invoked.
Children of Yacatecuhtli reside in Barrack M along with children of Malinalxochi.
