    Default Request: Monograms of ancient greek polis and hellenistic kings

    Hi,

    i'm creating shield textures for hellenistic factions and minor greek city states for my longterm project a overhaul mod for Rome II.

    As long i have found out, that greek polis and hellenistic states/ kings had used monograms for their shield patterns (shown mostly on coins).

    For example the wellknown lambda for sparta.

    Or MAKE for Macedonia:

    Or ATN for Antigonos Gonatas:

    So has anyone knowledge which monograms greek polis / hellenistic kingdoms / hellenistic kings used in old greek alphabet?

    Examples in ancient greek are welcome.

    I will try then to repaint them as shield pattern.
