Quiyahuac Huetztoc (MH777v)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Quiyahuac Huetztoc ("Fallen Outside" is attested here as a man's name. It shows an unclothed (perhaps meaning vulnerable) man, waist up, on his back, looking upward, and with his arms in the air as though he has fallen (huetztoc). He is probably outside (quiyahuac), although this is not shown visually.

Added Analysis: 

Quiyahuac often means "outside," but in glyphs it is typically shown as a location in the entryway or exit of a building--which is outside, of course. Karttunen also suggests "la plaza."
