Inehuiyan (MH521v)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Inehuiyan (here, attested as a man's name) shows a man's head in profile, facing the viewer's right. His visible eye is wide open, his hair is short and spiky, and his mouth is closed. Still, three volutes appear in front of his face, as it he might be speaking. Perhaps he is expressing his will, as the gloss suggests that his name is "through his own volition."
