Tlallaneuh (MH791v)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Tlallaneuh (perhaps "Has Borrowed Land") is attested here as a man's name. The glyph shows a bird's eye view of a parcel of seeded agricultural land (tlalli) and a frontal view of a large hand (maitl) in front of the land. The hand could suggest something about the land being borrowed or rented, not owned.
