Cuicanenel (MH532r)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Cuicanenel (“He Who Mixes Up Songs,” attested here as a man’s name) shows the tribute payer with speech or song (cuica) scrolls emerging from his mouth. The scrolls are not especially mixed up (neneloa), but that is the suggestion of the gloss.
