Quenliz (MH775v)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Quenliz (some type of ritual bib, involving the stem for quemitl) is attested here as a man's name. This ritual garment has a band across the top so that the bib can be tied around a person's neck. The -liz part of the bib is difficult to determine. What shows are three rounded pieces, perhaps of cotton fabric. See below for examples of other quemitl.
