      wrong guess. Those times, church abbreviations had nothing to do with the Old Russian, originally they were Greek letters for Greek words.
      all in all, СХ isn't a correct abbreviation for Christ/Jesus Christ, it was IС ХС: IиСус ХриСтос, a calc from the Byzanthian abbraviation (irt was Sygma there instead of Cyrillic С). Thus, it's either an attempt to show the middle of the abbreviation, or simply some meaningless dots.
      AND, btw, it's all the same not the Nestor's original text from the XII century, but its illuminated copy dated 1300s. So, the copyist was ab-so-lutely free to change the original miniature.
      Something like that.

      Most probably it is SVIATOI HRIST.

      I have an image from the Nestor Chronicle of a flag that seems to bear the letters С Х.
      Could that have been a period way to denote "with Christ"?
       
       
      Do you see it as something other than С Х?
