Re: Q: Student Questions on Byzantine Art

Dear Kristina Huneault,

I believe the "clubs" to which you refer are actually trefoils --
symbols of the Holy Trinity.

The "Z" might actually be an "N" which would represent the Greek word Nika
which means "victor" or "conqueror" -- so Christ the Conqueror.
