Xochitilma (MH487r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Xochitilma (here, attested as a man's name) shows an upright, three-petalled flower (xochitl) above a rectangular cloth (tilmatli) that was used for a ruler's cloak. The cloth has some vertical lines showing slight folds, and a knot that would go on the man's shoulder is there to clue the viewer in to the fact that this is a cloak.
