Cuitlapech (MH625v)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Cuitlapech (perhaps "Excrement-Mat") is attested here as a man's name. On the left are small markings and circles that probably intend a reading of cuitlatl (excrement). To the right of that is a circular woven mat with signs of weaving around the perimeter and a blank center. To the right of this circle is a crescent-shaped woven mat that cradles the circular mat.
