Abstract and Keywords

This article reviews archaeological evidence of the Olmec, Teotihuacan, and Aztec horizons in the Southern Pacific Coastal Region (SPCR). It also presents what is known of a system of emergent urban centers and “Izapan-style” iconography that unite the SPCR as a discrete region in its own right during the Late Formative period. It adopts macro-temporal and macro-spatial frameworks consistent with a world-systems perspective, which allows for synthetic treatment of geographically dispersed peoples sharing elements of symbolic culture and exchanging goods.

Keywords: Olmec, Teotihuacan, Aztec, urban centers, iconography, Late Formative period
