Ce contenu est une compilation d'articles de l'encyclop die libre Wikipedia. Labrys ( in Greek, l brys) is the term for a symmetrical doubleheaded axe originally from Crete in Greece, one of the oldest symbols of Greek civilization; to the Romans, it was known as a bipennis.The double-bitted axe remains a forestry tool to this day, and the labrys certainly functioned as a tool and hewing axe 3] before it was invested with symbolic function. 4] Labrys symbolism is found in Minoan, Thracian, and Greek religion, mythology, and art, dating from the Middle Bronze Age onwards, and surviving in the Byzantine Empire. The labrys also appears in African religious symbolism and mythology (see Shango).Today the symbol is controversial in Greece, because of its use by the authoritarian Metaxas Regime which governed the country from 1936-1941.
