    Am I correct that this is supposed to be the earliest example of the specifically Christian iconography of a labarum with Chi-Ro above, slaying a serpent -- with the serpent as a figure symbolizing evil, rather than the positive attributes it traditionally represented on Roman coins?

    Also, funny that they just couldn’t find the space for the terminal “A”

    Thanks, victor. I thought the A was the last letter of “PVBLICA”
