Ticomecatl (MH761v)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Ticomecatl is attested here as a man's name. The glyph includes a ceramic vessel (comitl) with a narrowing neck and a handle on each side. Coming out of the top of the vessels are two ends of rope (mecatl). It is likely that these are phonetic indicators.
