Huexotla (MH775v)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This is a black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal and/or place name Huexotla (perhaps "[Place of] Abundant Willows"). It may be the place of origin of the person rather than his name. The glyph is a tree, presumably a willow, with a trunk, two symmetrical branches, and visible roots.
