Ateuh (MH613v)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Ateuh ("Like Water") is attested here as a man's name. It shows a war shield in the form of a circle with a small circle in the center and four evenly-placed, half-round designs inside the perimeter. How the shield relates to something "like water," as the gloss might suggest, is a mystery. More research is required for this glyph, but it appears that the shield is not a logogram.
