A word appearing in notes from 1967 as an element in indemma “mind-picture” and quantemma “facsimile, a complete detailed visual reproduction (by any means) of a visible thing” (PE17/174, 179), probably meaning “picture, *image” (the latter gloss suggested by Tamas Ferencz). It was based on the root √EM “depict, portray”.
