Icnotlatoa (MH522r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Icnotlatoa (or Icnotlahtoa, with the glottal stop) ("He Speaks Humbly" or "Asks for Alms"? attested here as a man's name) shows the head of a man in profile, looking toward the viewer's right. He seems to have very little hair on his head; perhaps he is a baby. Six speech scrolls emerge from his mouth in the form of simple curving lines that have a curl at the tip.
