As a first comment:
I logged on to the Yo'okop website but found the photographs take
forever to download (at one point, my browser informed me it
needed 10 minutes to download all the pictures from the first
page in the epigraphy section). It occurs to me that the pictures
might not be correctly compressed, as even graphic-rich webpages
normally load down in a couple of minutes, tops.
As for the line drawing with the k'aloomte' title, I was going
to refer you to Elisabeth Wagner's excellent article, but noticed
you are already aware of it. Concerning the head glyph in the
Yo'okop glyph block, I believe it is more likely an Ajaw head,
rather than an "Ixik" or "Na" (female) one. I am of this opinion,
particularly considering it has a dark (crosshatched) spot on the
cheek. Although hardly a scientific argument, the "feel" of this
face also makes me think it is an Ajaw head. I could be wrong, of
course, but this is my sense here.
A second possibility is for it to be the head variant of number
eleven, particularly given the other dark (crosshatched) spot on
the top of the face head and the apparent little curl streaming
down from the corner of the eye. If so, then this eleven
coefficient would be attached to the last glyph in the block
which, unfortunately, I cannot speculate on: it is too confusing.
It appears to have either a "nal" element or an axe on top of it,
neither of which I find particularly helpful as an association
with a numerical coefficient.
Finally, I believe the line drawing is a bit flaky and could be
improved by going back to the monument (preferably at night) and
try to fish out additional information through the use of a
moving, raking light. Maybe the retrieval of additional data would
clarify what your two elements are and what their association to
the k'aloomte' title might be.
Just my opinion.
