Archaeologists re-examining and evaluating objects discovered in 1970 in the London suburb of Brentford, found them dating back to the 4th century CE fragment of a pottery product with an engraved Christian symbol. The item has a monogram composed of the first two letters of the Greek word Khristos, meaning Christ.

According to scientists, Christian symbols on Roman objects are rare, especially in regions like England. Only a few similar finds in the London area are known.
