Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name, Cuetlaneuh ("Borrowed Skirt"?), is attested here as a man's name. It shows a rectangular skirt (cueitl) with vertical stripes and a horizontal border with hash marks along the bottom. A hand holds the skirt, which may suggest that it is something borrowed or lent (tlaneuh).
