Coptic Seal in the Form of a Crescent

Post  Admin on Wed Feb 24, 2010 7:40 am


This metal seal in the form of a crescent is inscribed with a Coptic word that consists of seven raised letters. The word is "Agios", which means "holy". Holiness is an attribute of God's attributes: He alone is absolutely holy.

A raised border surrounds the word. The seal has a circular handle with a ball-shaped part joining it to allow precision of usage.

The use of such seals in the church and contents was widespread to proclaim the name of the God and his holiness and for the purpose of blessing everything therein.
