What as the fleur de lis to the ancient Romans? Curious to find them in a fountain niche decorated with nymphs. Are they a late addition from the Christian era? Is there meaning more ancient, traceable as some web pages suggest to the three sacred lotus of ancient Egypt? There is no easy answer from The Google, and I have lost my library privileges at UNO, but I will somehow find out.
