INRI 

The initial letters of the inscription in Latin, "Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum," which means "Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews." When Jesus was crucified, Pilate had this inscription placed on the cross. It was written in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek (Jn 19:19-20). INRI is frequently used in depictions of the crucifixion.
