Term: Cross of Confusion

Supposedly an ancient Roman symbol which questioned the validity of Christianity. It consists of an equal-armed (solar) cross, however the four bars of the cross do not meet at the center. Instead, there is a dot in the middle. The decending bar is replaced by a sickle, giving the appearance of an inverted question mark. Popularized in recent times as a symbol used by the band Blue Oyster Cult.
