Ixpantzinco (TV4r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Ixpantzinco (“In Front Of," attested here as a man's name), shows a frontal view of a leaf-shaped eye (ixtli) painted in a European style. Above the eye is an upright white banner (panitl) flying toward the viewer's right. The reverential, locative suffix (-tzinco) is not shown visually.

Added Analysis: 

The two elements of this compound both have a phonetic role intending the word ixpan, which means "before" or "in front of," making it a fully phonographic compound. The man with this "name" also has another name, Martín Gutiérrez. In fact, if it were not for the nature of the glyph, one might have expected the "ixpantzinco" preposition to be referring to his location in front of someone of authority.
