Tlalala (MH641r)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Tlalala shows a bell hanging from a cord or leather strip. The name seems onomatopoetic, perhaps intending the sound of a bell ringing.

Added Analysis: 

Two terms we have put into the dictionary field in this record both have a similar repeating "a" across several syllables. And see the glyphs for Callalatl, which also show bells.
