Xochitlacuilol (MH771r)
Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Xochitlacuilol ("Drawing of a Flower") is attested here as a man's name. One element is a flower (xochitl) three visible petals and a base with three parts. Coming from behind and out both sides of the flower are curving, squiggly lines that suggest a piece of writing (tlacuilolli).
