Imac Tlacuiya (MH602r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Imac Tlacuiya (“He Wraps His Hand,” attested here as a man’s name) shows a frontal view of a right hand (maitl). There appears to be a cloth wrapping around the wrist of the hand. This wrapping appears to point to the verb tecuiya, to wrap, or tlacuiya, wind around.
