Coriantumr Did Sound a Trumpet to Invite The Armies of Shiz to Battle

Alan C. Miner

In Ether 14:28 we find that “Coriantumr did gather his armies together upon the hill Comnor, and did sound a trumpet unto the armies of Shiz to invite them forth to battle.” According to Glenn Scott, it is very interesting to note that the blowing of a trumpet to initiate battle was a custom observed in Mesoamerica until the Spanish Conquest.
