Tomb plaque, Chi-Rho symbol for Christ, Spain, Byzantine or Visigothic, 4th-8th century A.D. This plaque is thought to be a cover for a niche in a columbarium, or communal tomb. The Christogram, the monogram for Christ's name formed from the first two letters of his name in Greek (x and p), identifies the deceased as Christian. Scholars debate the meaning of the inscription in Latin, which may be a prayer for the deceased, 33.3 x 31.5 x 6 cm. Metropolitan museum of art

Brick with stamp of the Tenth Legion, “L X FRE,” and the accidental imprint of a Roman soldier’s sandal (caliga), roman period, 1st-2nd century A.D.

The legions would record their labors for posterity with Latin inscriptions carved in stone, 29 cm long. The Israel museum, Jerusalem
