Other Names and Titles
In Texts 5 and 6 “Casper II” is named as a Toktan Ajaw. Text 7 names him both as a Ch’ok and with the standard Palenque emblem glyph as a K’uhul B’akal Ajaw. In Text 8 a possible reference to the Palenque kingdom exists in the glyph b’ak, which follows the possible reference to “Casper II”, though on balance I believe this reference is dubious.
