Astfel de figurine de teracota apartinand  civilizatiei myceniene, sunt denumite psi, tau, phi, datorita asemanarii lor cu literele alfabetului grec. Figurinele tau, phi, psi apartinand civilizatiei Myceniene deriva din cele din Creta care la randul lor deriva din cele din  Siria.  Realizat dupa  aproximativ 2300 de ani, bronzul lui Max Ernst, intitulat Bishop, Qeen and Night se aseamana cu literele (de la stanga la dreapta): tau, phi, psi.
