Ihual (MH784v)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Ihual (perhaps "Night Star") is attested here as a man's name. This glyph requires further analysis. It shows an eight-point white star (citlalin) inside a black circle, possibly representing the night (yohualli). The star may suggest European influence.
