Olin (MH532r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Olli or Olin (“Rubber" or "Movement," attested here as a man’s name) shows a black rubber ball (ol(li)] in the middle of the symbol for movement (olin). While the gloss says "Olli," the final "n" could easily have dropped away inadvertently, and the desired name could be Olin. Whichever the name it, Olli or Olin, both elements appear in this compound. One is the phonetic indicator and the other is a phonetic complement, given that these terms are near homophones.
