Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Teoxoch ("Divine Flower") is attested here as a woman's name. It shows a stone (tetl), which provides the phonetic Te- start to the name. This stone is typically dark at one end and light at the other, the two parts separated by a double diagonal line. This line has hash marks across it. The ends of the stone are curly. Above the stone is a tripartite flower. The petals of this flower are dark at the top and light at the bottom.
