Xochitequi (MH649r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This colorful compound glyph for the personal name Xochitequi ("Flower-Cutter"?) appears here as a man's name. Perhaps it is an occupation. It shows a flower (xochitl) with three petals painted pink or red, but with white at the bottom. A green base encloses the petals, also tripartites. Below the flower is a black and white stone, apparently providing for a semantic reading for the verb "to cut" (tequi). The stone has some curls on the ends and black and white alternating stripes. The white stripe has some thin black lines running through it.
