Ocelopan (MH525r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name or place of origin, Ocelopan (perhaps, "On the Jaguar"), which is attested here as a man’s name. It shows the head of a jaguar (ocelotl) in profile, facing toward the viewer's right. The jaguar head is spotted. Its visible eye is open. Below this head (and partially behind it) is an upright banner with a white rectangular flag, providing the phonetic indicator for the locative suffix -pan [from panitl).
