Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Cocotl (attested here as a man's name) shows a ceramic pot with what may be steam coming up from it in the form of three curling volutes. How this relates to any of our dictionary terms, such as cocotl or cocotli, is unclear.
