Ideogrammic compound (會意) – a tied bag (𣒚), with various items in it (𤕦). 𤕦 also serves as a phonetic element. There are many alternative forms. In the modern, standard form, the bottom turned into an abbreviated form of 襄, with the result that the character is a phono-semantic compound (形聲, OC *naːŋ): abbreviated semantic 㯻(“bag”) + abbreviated phonetic 襄(OC *snaŋ). Etymology best preserved in small seal script form.
