A traditional piece from Byzantine and Russian sources. The Church Slavonic script reads from the top and left to right as follows: "King of Glory," "INRI (Jesus Nazarene King of Judea)," "Son of God," "Jesus Christ," "Your Cross we adore O Lord/Master." At his feet are the words "To Conquer." At his left side are a Holy Apostle and a converted Roman soldier. At his right side are St. Mary and St. Martha. Below his feet is the skull of Adam in keeping with the legend that the Cross would be erected over Adam's grave. At the very top are the figures of God and the Archangels Gabriel and Michael. This piece was reproduced from the original, which was cast in gold. Byzantine. 8 1/2" high x 5" wide.
