The letter alpha was the first letter of the greek alphabeth, symbolizing the beginning of all things.
During the roman empire, it was used as a symbol for the goddess Venus and the planet which wascalled after her. The pentagram was also used as a sign for a human with head, 2 hands and 2 feet, in the same way like Leonardo da Vinci depicted the man in his famous Proportional Studybased onVitruvius.
