PEREZ, Juan Pio (pay'-reth), Mexican antiquarian, born in Merida, Yucatan, 11 March, 1798; died there, 6 March, 1859. After he had acquired his primary education he studied at the Seminary of Ildefonso, in his native city, then entered public life, and served his country in various employments. He collected many antiquities and much information about the history of Yucatan, and published "Cronologia Antigua Yucateca " (Merida, 1847). This work has been published in Spanish in the " Registro Yucateco " (Madrid), in English in the work of John L. Stephens on Yucatan (1843), and in French in those of Brasseur de Bourbourg. He studied the Yucatec or Maya language, and formed a "Diccionario Maya," of which Mr. Stephens brought a copy to the United States. This remained in manuscript at his death, but was afterward published (Merida, 1877). There remain in manuscript another important work, "Gramatica de la lengua Maya." and many pamphlets.
