Eudoxia, Augusta 9 January 400 - early October 404 A.D.

Eudoxia was the strong-willed wife of Arcadius. They were married on 27 April 395 A.D. She exercised considerable influence over policy, much to the disgust of many high ranking Romans, notably in the Church. Eudoxia died in childbirth in early October 404 A.D. She and Arcadius had five children, including Theodosius II and Pulcheria who were made emperor and empress after Arcadius died in 408 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.
