Tequipazol (MH630r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Tequipazol (perhaps "Worker in the Briar Patches") is attested here as a man's name. It shows a stone (tetl), which provides the phonetic Te(qui)- start to the name. The stone is horizontal with the usual curling ends and alternating light and dark diagonal lines across the middle. One end of the stone is dark, and the other end of the stone is light. Seemingly coming out from behind the stone are squiggly lines that apparently represent a briar patch (pazolli).
