Xipopoca (MH775r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Xipopoca (perhaps "Turquoise Smoke") is attested here as a man's name. Four symmetrically arranged mosaic turquoise (xihuitl) pieces provide the start to the name, Xi-. The reduplicated ending, -popoca, is represented by three smoke curls (popoca) that rise from the xihuitl.
