Hellenistic Symbol?
By:
Post # 1
Hey everyone! I was wondering if there was a symbol for Hellenism as a whole, kind of like how Christians have the cross as their symbols. I know each god/goddess has their own individual symbol, but I'm looking for something that covers Hellenism as a whole. Thanks for any help you guys can give me

To my knowledge, no. At the time that Hellonistic religions were widely practiced other gods of other cultures were generally adopted into a pantheon, or otherwise acknowledged as deities in their own right. The Greeks, and Romans subsequently, frequently simply superimposed their particular god or goddess over another culture's, even as other cultures did the same to them. There wasn't really much of a symbol for the pantheon as a whole, and the lines were quite blurred.

Then again, I may be wrong. Somebody might turn up with one.

That's what I was kind of thinking, but I just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something other people knew.

Several Hellenists like to wear a labrys, and it's a more or less "official" symbol for some Hellenic groups. Otherwise there's the crown of laurels which is also popular.
