Dear Ethan, all,

The drop down "resources" http://www.cidoc-crm.org/ is always 
up-to-date. Please consult this as reference, our apologies that our 
team which works all this without any funding, is sometimes behind with 
the cross-links.

I agree with Robert:

About P190:

"This property associates an instance of E90 Symbolic Object with a 
complete, identifying representation of its content in the form of an 
instance of E62 String. This property only applies to instances of E90 
Symbolic Object that can be represented completely in this form."

That means that the URI you use stands for nothing else than this 
string. Using: “☧”, is then correct.

If you mean the actual monogram of Albrecht Dürer, for example, you 
would need  "Dürer's Monogram" - incorporates ?E90 - P190 has symbolic 
content: "AD"...
because the monogram is more than the two characters.
