Tayauh (MH777r)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Tayauh ("Our Cloak") is attested here as a man's name. It shows a square piece of fabric with a segmented border and three vertical, squiggly stripes.

Added Analysis: 

The ayatl could be a blanket instead of a cloak, but in other examples of Tayauh two corners are tied, which suggest a cloak that would be tied at one shoulder, similar to the tilmatli cloak/cape.
