Inscribed in Greek and English: "ΖΩΗ ΦΩΣ" on front intersecting at the letter omega Ω and the translation "Life Light" on the back with blue enamel. The 19th Century cross on which this cross is based was, in itself, modeled after a piece or archeological jewelry from the Roman empire. The cross became a common symbol in the Byzantine world after Emperor Constantine legalized Christianity throughout the Roman Empire in 313 CE. The words may be a reference to John 1:4 and the omega may be another Biblical reference: "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last." - Revelation 22:13.
