• You mean INRI? The words were "Iesvs Nazarenvs Rex Ivdaeorvm." Latin uses "I" instead of the English "J", and "V" instead of "U" (i.e., Jesus Nazarenus Rex Judaeorum). The English translation is "Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews."
  • When I was a little kid my cousin told me that it meant "I'm nailed right in." I didn't doubt him for like, a year. The actual translation is what The Troll mentioned.
  • I think you will find it's 'INRI' INRI is an acronym of the Latin phrase IESVS·NAZARENVS·REX·IVDÆORVM, which translates to English as: "Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews".
