Huipilzol (MH733r)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name, Huipilzol (“Old Huipil”) is attested here as as a man’s name. The glyph is a frontal view of a rectangular huipilli (blouse) with the usual V-neck and a smaller rectangular reinforcement on the chest (a pechero, in Spanish). The panels above this smaller rectangle have horizontal stripes. The fact that this is an old blouse is not shown visually.
