quemitl (MH537v)
Element from a Compound

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This image for this element is shared with the compound personal name, Xochiquen, which was the name of an interim ruler of Mexico-Tenochtitlan (1532–36). The name was taken by humble men, too. The glyph is a square with flowers and leaves on it, drawn in a style that may suggest European influence.

Added Analysis: 

The name Xochiquen, as translated by Víctor M. Castillo F., is a flowery garment. Thus, the second part of the name would be drawn from quemitl--hence our selection of this entry.
