Tired of saying “holy symbol” all the time while playing clerics or paladins? Try hierogram as a fun alternative. “I hold aloft my silver hierogram and banish the fiend as it lunges for me Hierogram really just means "holy-shape" so specifying what the icon is made from is a good idea when you use this word, unless you're drawing it on a piece of paper.
An amulet? Golden/silver/wooden hierogram.
On a shield? Emblazoned hierogram.
