概要 In the process of the consolidation of the Teotihuacan state, it is generally thought that Otumba and Pachuca obsidian resources were monopolized by the central authority and were distributed throughout the Central Highlands. Nevertheless, this is an inadequate perspective of the political economy during the Classic period mainly because obsidian from other sources was also circulated in this region. In order to better understand the process of political centralization and the expansion of economic systems, this study examines how acquired resources were manufactured to materialize the symbol of the authority based on the changes and continuities in obsidian procurement systems.
