      Nilus,

      Bishops in the Syriac Orthodox tradition hold staffs which have snakes on them for two reasons:

      1) The serpent is a symbol of wisdom. "Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves."

      2) It is also an allusion to the serpent Moses lifted up in the wilderness, that whomever looked upon it would be healed.
