One of the few Mexican codices saved from destruction. Codex Veitia dates from 1755 and tells us the ways in which the Indians celebrated their festivals. It is one of the last in a large important family of Mexican codices known as the Magliabecchiano group, which includes codices Magliabecchiano, Tudela, and Ixtlilxochitl. Codex Veitia takes its name from the scholar who commissioned it, Don Mariano Fernándex de Echevarría y Veytia. 22 pages of colored drawings make up the codex proper, with additional texts explaining various themes in Aztec culture.

The ms consists of six parts:

1) Mexican counting system;

2) The way in which Indians celebrated their feasts;

3) The gods and the Main Temple of Mexico City;

4) Chronology of the foundation of Mexico City;

5) Ixtlilxochitl calendar;

6) Notes on the calendar.
