Symbolism The CHI-RHO symbol (also known as chrismon) is one of the earliest forms of Christo gram formed by superimposing the first two capital letters (X and P) of the Greek XPIETOE “Christ” in such a way that the vertical stroke of the rho intersects the center of the chi (pronounced kee-roe), first Christian cross, adopted by the Roman Emperor Constantine, representing the first two letters in the name of Christ. “By this sign you shall conquer.” It is a monogram of Christ, an anagram.
