St. Nicholas lived during the 3rd c. and into the 4th c. He is the patron saint of children, sailors, and prisoners. This design incorporates the St. Andrew Cross with extensive lettering King of Glory appearing in Slavonic abbreviation at the top. IC XC for Jesus Christ is on the upper cross bar, Sn Bzhii for Son of God on the lower cross bar, and NI KA for conquers on the lower upright. At the base there is a skull for the skull of Adam. To the left of the upright is a spear, and the right a staff with a sponge. On the reverse side is the Slavonic verse, Let God arise Tradition teaches that when the Apostle Andrew preached in southern Russia he placed a life-size three-bar cross at his side. While explaining the Last Judgment he tilted the foot plate to signify that those on the right side of Christ will go up into heaven and those on the left will go down into hell.
