Tlacochin (MH627r)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Tlacochin ("Arrow") is attested here as a man's name. It shows a frontal view of two arrows pointed downward. The points are barbed, each one with two barbs. They are also segmented (perhaps suggesting that they are made from the acatl reed), and they have fletching at the top.
