This is a plank of wood that is purported to be the sign hung above Christ on the cross. I breifly saw a film called "The Quest for the True Cross" on the Discovery Channel last night, which introduced me to this relic. It is really rather difficult to find additional information on it, but I did find THIS webpage, but you will have to use a translator (e.g. babelfish) to go from the Spanish to English...unless your spanish is up to better snuff than mine, which typically proceeds no further than taco, burrito, and jalepenos. And frankly, even the translation is a bear to work through.
I will continue to look for more info...authentic or not, I find this stuff fascinating.
