Huecamecatl (MH531v)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Huecamecatl (perhaps: “Long Cord,” attested here as a man’s name) has yet to be deciphered. One element, at the top, is something like water, but it lacks the black lines of current. The element below this is something like a mountain or perhaps a hat--admittedly totally different possibilities, and it may be something else entirely.
