Acontepetl (MH639r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Acontepetl (perhaps "Water Jug Hill") is attested here as a man's name. It seem more like a place name. It features a proportionally large jug (comitl) and a hill or mountain (tepetl). The A- start to the name (which would come from atl, water) is not shown visually, but it could be implied that the jug was for water.
