Art & Imagination ABRAXAS stone (2nd-century gem). The word Abraxas was found in gnostic texts and also in the #Greek magical papyri. The #gnostic Basilides calls him the great archon or ruler over the 365 spheres. This particular gem has the letters ΙΑΩ on the shield, which makes it an Abraxas stone with Jewish symbols, as ΙΑΩ is one of the divine Hebrew names. http://embassyofthefreemind.com/
