Pictogram (象形). The traditional (and incorrect) etymology says that 嘼 originally was a pictogram of an animal, with being the ears, (simplified to ) being the head, and (simplified to 𠮛) being the tail. This character appears in 獸, and it is a variant of a Y-shape weapon with two rocks on the top, 單 > 单. The wrong etymology can be found in the Shuowen Jiezi. Xu Shen says that this characters means 㹌, "beast".
