This type of structure is common on Bronze Age objects found in
different parts of the world. The sign has also been found on Nordic
rock carvings. Some researchers consider it to be a sun
symbol but this is
contradicted by the fact that the well-known and more common sun
symbol appears on the same rock
carvings. Furthermore, the sun cross is
one of the most important signs apart from
engraved on an old gold horn found in Slesvig, Denmark.
Our only clue as to its meaning, and it is a weak one, is that in rare instances is used as a sign for fire or flames in Western ideography, and that signifies the staff of Poseidon or Neptune as well as the spear used by devils to torture humans in the flames of hell.
Similar rock engraved prehistoric symbols have pictures of hands rather than fish spears emanating from the rim of the round disc.
