This State was the first to be abandoned in the Late Classic, when the Maya Collapse occurred in a south to north pattern, although Seibalmarker, was reoccupied by the Putún Maya or Toltec groups, according to the style of the Stelas in this period, the experts agree that they were not Classic Maya.
