Quizqui (MH784v)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Quizqui (perhaps "Taken Out" or "Came Out") is attested here as a man's name. The glyph includes a man's head in profile, facing toward the viewer's right. He has somewhat short hair, and a vertical line through his eye, which may or may not have been intentional. Below and seemingly attached to the head if a square with a border design along the top. Perhaps the head has come out (from the verb quiza, to emerge) from a box?
