Yacapepetz (MH639v)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This large circle filled in with black is the simplex glyph for the personal name Yacapepetz (perhaps "Shiny Nose") is attested here as a man's name. Perhaps the black circle is meant to convey "smooth and shiny" (pepetztic), in the way of a frontal view of a black mirror (tezcatl), although it lacks the red or white border around it. It does not necessarily bring the "nose" (yacatl) part to mind.
