Miton (MH843v)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Miton ("Little Arrow," attested here as a man's name) shows a frontal view of an arrow (mitl) at an angle, point down, leaning to the right. The point has two barbs. At the top of the arrow is a little fan of what are probably three feathers. This is apparently a small (-tontli) arrow, but the glyph does not show a visual diminutive.
