Tletlepan (MH545v)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This colorful simplex glyph of the personal name or place of origin, Tletlepan (perhaps "On the Fires"), shows about fourteen, wavy, red, upright flames. Two in the middle are emphasized with more of an outline and more curling at the top of the flames.

Added Analysis: 

The doubling of the central flames appears to work as a visual reduplication, such as is found in the gloss, with the doubling of the first syllable.
