ANCIENT SYMBOLS


The Traveler Medallion

The Traveler

Ancient symbol for protection while traveling. Specifics of this symbol are unknown but elements of its design are common to the rose compass. Possibly Roma / Gypsy. The Roma are originally from India, migrating to Europe and North Africa via the Iranian plateau around 1050 A.D.

The traveler is also a role that has been played throughout history by many powerful tricksters and shapeshifters of god-like power.

In Dungeons and Dragons, Faith of Ebberon, the symbol of the Traveler is an eight-pointed configuration of four crossed and rune-inscribed bones. The Traveler is said to walk the world in many forms. His domains are Artifice, Celerity, Chaos, Charm, Creation, Liberation, Travel, and Trickery.
