+KER OHQHRE OPRHA - literally, "Lord, aid"
The ancient bronze sealing device used to create this pendant is inscribed in ancient Greek and was created in what is now Greece and Turkey... once the heart of the mighty Christian Byzantine empire. The message is timeless - may the Lord help and protect you. It is a powerful reminder of the faith of an individual and an empire.
Your Cross & Lord Aid Seal:
- Metal: .999 Fine Silver
- Sealing Device Date: 1100 AD
- Sealing Device Origin: Byzantium (modern-day Greece and Turkey)
- Special Note: The seal used to make this pendant is a classic "chessman" seal. Named for the shape of a pawn on a chessboard, the seal has six tapering sides and is solid and sturdy. I love the cross at the beginning of the inscription - it is just like the legend on many Byzantine coins that has a cross and then: Jesus Christ, King of Kings!
