View Categories Home > Catalog > Roman Coins > Constantinian Era > Constantius II > RL73692Constantius II, 22 May 337 - 3 November 361 A.D. The Christogram (also called a Monogramma Christi or Chrismon) is a ligature of Chi (X) and Rho (P), the first two letters of Christ in Greek. It was among the earliest symbols of Christianity. The crucifix was rarely used in early Christian iconography, perhaps because most people then had personally witnessed its gruesome use for public execution.
