XILONEN (pronounced she-LO-nen) is the Aztec Goddess of corn. She is the wife of Tezcatlipoca, God of the night sky and the earth. She represents the young corn, just reaching tenderness. She is the maiden aspect of the corn Goddess, Chicomecoatl as the mother aspect, and Ilamatecuhtli as the crone. Her name means "the hairy one," referring to the silk tassels on new corn. In summer, maidens were sacrificed in Xilonen's name to ensure a good harvest of corn.
