INRI (Latin: Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum)
Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews
In the Western Church, most crucifixes and many depictions of the crucifixion of Jesus include a plaque or parchment placed above his head, called a titulus, or title, bearing only the Latin letters INRI, occasionally carved directly into the cross and usually just above the head of Jesus.
