Hand painted wood miniature illustrating the Chi Rho. Original artwork.

The Chi Rho (☧, English pronunciation /ˈkaɪ ˈroʊ/; also known as chrismon) is one of the earliest forms of Christogram, formed by superimposing the first two (capital) letters—chi and rho (ΧΡ)—of the Greek word ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ (Christos) in such a way that the vertical stroke of the rho intersects the center of the chi.

Although formed of Greek characters, the device (or its separate parts) is frequently found serving as an abbreviation in Latin text, with endings added appropriate to a Latin noun, thus XPo, signifying Christo, “to Christ”, the dative form of Christus, or χρ̅icola, signifying Christicola, “Christian”, in the Latin lyrics of Sumer is icumen in.
