Non-ankh[edit]

I believe the ring-cross

Codex Glazier 2.JPG

does not originate from the Ankh, but is instead a stripped version of

Anastasis Pio Christiano Inv31525.jpg

which have the symbolism of Jesus ChRist (the Chi Rho) defeating the death (the cross under it), while the wreath of thorns symbolizes the suffering of Jesus Christ.

I believe the source seiyaku.com claiming a possible Ankh connection leaps to conclusions because of lack of information. I think we might consider not relying on seiyaku.com unless we have other supporting sources.

I also think that the cross

Original Coptic cross.svg

is not a real original form, but instead an imaginary version of real forms where the square cross in the circle never touches the circle itself.

Gnostic[edit]

Why does Gnostic cross redirect to this article? the word Gnostic doesn't appear anywhere in it. 80.0.4.212 (talk) 15:04, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Origin of File:CopticCross.jpg[edit]

This design is now used by copticcatholicpatriarchate.net. But this website dates to 2014. The file was uploaded to Wikipedia in 2006 by User:afanous who claimed "I created this graphic myself". I suppose this means either that we have citogenesis, the people in charge of the website of the Coptic Catholic Church taking their logo from Wikipedia, or the uploader was lying and stole the design from some earlier website. Unfortunatly, experience tells me the latter case is more probable. So, this image is either an original design dating to 2006 or it is of unknown origin. --dab (𒁳) 15:50, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
