At the dawn of civilisation, for Mesopotamian kings, the symbols of power were the sceptre, the chalice, the sword and the crown.
The sceptre might be assimilated with Wands, the chalice with Cups, the sword is self-understood and the crown with Disks.
The sceptre is a masculine, phallic symbol.
The chalice represents the female genitals.
The sword can be associated with the cross.
The crown has traditionally been a symbol of authority and sovereignty, whether it is governance over the society or over oneself.
