Teicniuh (MH633v)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Teicniuh ("Friend of Everyone") shows a stone (providing the phonetic dimension for the start of the name, Te-) and an anonymous man's face in brief profile, facing right. The left end of the stone has curling ends; it also seems to have dark and light alternating stripes, and it is horizontal.

Added Analysis: 

Differing from this hieroglyph for "everyone's friend" is another example that uses "friend" as a root, but speaks sadly of the person as no longer being a friend.
