Description: The Staurogram or Tau Rho is the earliest Christogram representing the crucifixion. In Greek, the verb "to crucify" is stauroo, and a "cross" is a stauros. Thus, these letters create a pictographic representation of the crucifixion. Ex Tom Cederlind collection with tag. I can only mail this item within the US because of the thickness.
