Tetepotlil (MH613v)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Tetepotlil (perhaps "Stumpy Black Fingers" is attested here as a man's name. It shows a right hand painted black tlilli). The fingers may be stumpy, or at least curled inward, which makes them look short or cut off. The black paint either was applied sloppily, or it perhaps it suggests that the fingers were once longer.
