Constellation and Mythology
The Crux constellation was originally part of the Cerberus constellation during the days of Ancient Greece. It was centuries later that the constellation was rediscovered and separated from the Cerberus constellation, becoming the Crux constellation. Crux is Latin for Cross, and was named after it's shape.
While not appearing in the manga and anime, the Southern Cross Cloth appeared in the first Saint Seiya movie, Evil Goddess Eris. Christ was a revived Saint (aka a Ghost Saint), and was given this version of the Cloth. In the end, it was damaged and left behind, the ghost having been beaten
