Cuilol (MH784v)

Cuilol (MH784v)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Cuilol (perhaps "Painting") is attested here as a man's name. A cuilolli is apparently a painting or a piece of writing. So, what this glyph consists of seems to be three implements for writing or painting. The best comparison is the glyph for Cuilol from this same manuscript, on folio 829 recto.
