Ceheic (MH632v)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Ceheic is attested here as a woman’s name. The compound has two visible elements. The vertical line suggests the number one (ce). The bottom tip of the line comes into contact with a black bean (etl) with a white spot. The final part of the name -ic is not apparently shown visually. The translation will require further research, but it is probably not simply "One Bean," so the elements may well be phonetic. Bean (etl) can provide the vowel "e."
