Toyatihui (MH643r)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-and-white drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Toyatihui (attested here as a man’s name) consists two footprints going upward and then to the right. The verb to go (yauh) could be the root of the name, and footprints can represent that verb. But much is left unsaid visually for this name, which might mean "He Went Away Spilling Water."
