Symbols of Early Christianity on Ancient Roman and Medieval Coins
Christianity spread originally in the ancient Roman empire. The emperor
Constantine I, the Great had the
First Council of Nicaea standardize Christianity circa 325 A.D.. Since those times, the
symbols of Christianity were well wide-spread on ancient coinage. Certainly an
interesting topic to collect and explore. This article puts many different
topics relating to Christianity together for a quick guide to those topics on
ancient coins. There may be more topics to explore, and I would like to add them
to the list, if you should like to let me know about them. May this be helpful

that are connected with the "Holy Land"
Tribute penny coins were issued by
Tiberius - Roman Emperor 14 A.D. - 37 A.D.

His coins exist and are an interesting area to collect.

- Coins with the
Chi-Rho and Labarum Military standard,
a combination of the initials of Jesus Christ in Greek, the letters X and P. The
pronunciation of those two letters was actually Chi for X and Rho for the P.
This symbol was said "By this Sign I shall Conquer" used by
Constantine I, the Great. Notice how in the coin on the right, the emperor
holds a captive by the head, while holding the standard with the
Ancient Roman coins depicting Angels, know in Roman times as Victory.
It is easy to establish a connection with the ancient Greek goddess
that was adopted by the early Christians and known nowadays as angels.
