Silver Lion passant holding cross and wearing crown

Large Silver gold plated cross on chain.

Please help me identify the mark. It is a Lion or some cat holding a cross or sword and wearing a crown perhaps. Makers mark appears to have greek letter Psi.

Hi,
The lion is The Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia.
Two letters on the left are from Armenian alphabet.
The image of the whole cross might help.
Regards

Thank you for your help. I am adding picture of Armenian coat of arms for reference.

The Cross is modern or vintage, set with brilliant cut Zirconia and garnet.

Hello again,
Yes, it is Eternity "Khachkar" Armenian cross.
Vintage or modern (as you said), I suppose it`s meant for priests.
Regards
