Miztli Yauh (MH632v)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Miztli Yauh (perhaps "The Mountain Lion Goes," attested here as a woman's name) shows the head of a mountain lion (miztli) in profile looking toward the viewer's right. Below him is a stream of water (atl), which can provide the phonetic "a" of yauh (to go). The stream of water has a line of current (movement), but it also has three lines on the left end, further suggesting movement, which could additionally feed into the verb yauh.
