so I found this interesting symbol and was wondering if it had any meaning. Tried a reverse image search but came up with nothing. The thing is that this wasn't a grave marker and was in a random spot all by itself.

Here's another symbol I found on the same day for your enjoyment.



this was another interesting symbol I found on a mausoleum and after some help from some ATS members (Snarl and Syxpak) I found out it was a Chi Rho alpha and omega symbol. Here's the description I found after some research:




The Chi Rho is one of the earliest cruciform symbols used by Christians.
It is formed by superimposing the first two letters of the word "Christ" in Greek, chi = ch and rho = r.
Although not technically a cross, the Chi Rho invokes the crucifixion of Jesus as well as symbolizing His status as the Christ.

Looks like an ancient ship symbol. It also reminds me of the Sin/Shin symbol.

An ancient ship symbol? Like something they would etch on to the side of the ship? interesting stuff guys thanks for the replies. At first I thought the MCE would be Greek or Dutch symbols but that turned up empty. If I remember correctly it was near the old dutch church part of the cemetery but I'm not to sure if I'm remembering correctly. Now that I think of it I'm pretty sure it was on the opposite side of the cemetery.

you know one part of me says its probably just a grave marker but the side that enjoys a good mystery wants it to be more symbolic. Like for example the Alpha sign used in cemeteries stand for purity.

Really? Alpha and omega comes from Revelation 22:13




I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.


not like i lurk around cemeteries but alpha and omega are a pretty common christian symbol

It's 15'the 16's circa... the plot stone matches many cemeteries around here ( they date back to 1660's )claiming ownership..

So it means that whoever bought the piece of land. Is a family plot. I would look around that stone and try to find a headstone with the names beginning with those 3 initials.



Edit: looked at photos I took at Barton cemetery north of here.. the dates start around 1660's . My mistake

You guys made some great points. I probably just wanted to see more then what it really was. If any of you live around New York I suggest checking out sleepy Hallow. Very interesting small town. On your way back from the cemetery be sure to stop by at Rockwood State park. BEAUTIFUL view of the water and nice lush grass to lay in. Will defiantly visit again. Thanks again for the input everyone.

Turn it sideways and you have McE, an abbreviation. That is an odd sort of M, but one my mother used in her signature and I do in mine as well. I've seen this stylized font formalized typographically only one other time in a TV series, but I can't remember which one, though I believe I have a DvD of it somewhere.

Its clearly Celtic in origin

like Celtics Modern Medium

Clearly i'm not an expert and that m is nothing as the one in the picture, but if you look "Celtic letters" you will find the same m

my phones orientation was off that's why the picture came out wrong. I thought it was interesting because of the font also. Thought maybe it was letters of a different language with a different meaning from McE
