Ihuitlpopoca (MH765r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Ihuitlpopoca ("The Feather Smokes") is attested here as a man's name. The feather (ihuitl) in this compound is generic and upright, with a visible calamus and downy barbs at the bottom. Surrounding the feather are ten pairs of little lines. These are not the usual volutes for smoke, but they are the only suggestion of a visual that might represent the -popoca (it smokes) part of the name.
