Cuauhtilma (MH535r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Cuauhtilma (“Eagle-Cloak,” attested here as a man’s name) shows a profile view of an eagle (cuauhtli) tipped somewhat backwards, with its wings and one foot raised in the air. It has a relatively long neck with spiky feathers. Behind the eagle is a rectangle--presumably representing a cloth that is meant to be a cloak (tilmatli) one would tie at the shoulder.
