The only suggestion that "monoskelis" need make is to define the shape, a single radiating whorl, just as triskeles describes a triple radiating whorl (see below). Some authors call this "monoskelis" gizmo a 'tamgha' or monogram. Given the affinity of Lydia to Persia, the notion of a tamgha makes some sense. One Greek dictionary defines μονοσκελης
(note η rather than ι at the end) as someone standing on one leg "in the custom of the Brahmans".
