An island with sandbar was a port of one island with a fortress on the river Cuchin near the mouth of the Red Sea. There was a massacre there by the ruler of Cuchin [sic] against Calichut [sic] where Arreschorva was killed and many men died.The king of Portugal was to send his navy to Calichut [sic] within 26 years.[p. 166]

Oh, I think I should mention that between Portugal and Spain, there was a 38-year difference. It seems the Church decided that the Caesarian calendar in Spain was bad for the country and changed their year to the Christian year. . . . . 38-years in advance. So Columbus and Portugal sailed together at the same time.
It seems this is what the Distance numbers are doing to the Maya Calendar system. The original date is in glyphs for the church version while the Distance number is the same date were written according to Maya older dating systems. Sylvanus Morley, in his third edition of the "Ancient Maya" on pages229-230. The MAYA priests did it differently:
"Let us permit our calendar year to gain on the true year as fast as it will. We will allow our calendar to function without change, but when we erect a monument, we will engrave upon it, in addition to the official calendar date of its dedication, a calendar correction for that particular date. In this way, no matter what month our calendar may register, we shall always know, whenever we erect a monument, the position of its corresponding date in the true year"
