A riddle in which words and phrases are represented by pictures of things, whose names chance to bear some resemblance to them in sound, as the figure of an eye for the pron. I; common in former times as a family device or bearing, an example of which may be seen on one of the windows of a chapel in Gloucester Cathedral-the name Compton is represented by the picture of a comb, followed by the syllable ton.
