Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Cuitlamiz (“Cougar Excrement”) is attested here as a man’s name. The top part of the glyph is the head of a wild cat, facing toward the viewer’s right. Its coat is textured, its mouth is open, and sharp teeth protrude. Below this animal’s head is a swirl of excrement. It is connected by a short line to the lower jaw of the cougar.
