Zoquitecon (MH658v)
Simplex Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the simplex glyph for the personal name Zoquitecon (“Ceramic Vessel”) is attested here as a man’s name. It is a ceramic jug that is upright, rounded, and has shading on the right side that gives it a three-dimensionality, a European artistic introduction. The handle is on the viewer’s left and the spout is on the right. The jug seems to be holding a hot liquid, because steam seems to arise from the top.
