Huitztoxiuh (MH633v)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Huitzoxiuh (perhaps "Thorn-Our Flower") is attested here as woman's name. The elements are a two-toned thorn pointing downward at an angle. The bottom half is black, the top half white. The flower appears to be pierced by the thorn at about its middle. The flower is upright, with three visible petals, a base, a stem, and one leaf going off to the left.
