Mopipiloa (MH771r)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Mopipiloa (perhaps "Hanging Down") is attested here as a man's name. It seemingly shows a profile view of an apparatus with three hooks. At the end of each hook is a ball. The way it the apparatus is turned, the hooks are hanging down (mopipiloa).
