22 Arcani Maggiori

Each Major Arcanum portrays a scene, generally highlighting an individual or a few groups, with numerous emblematic components. In numerous decks, each has a number (generally in Roman numerals) and a name, however not all decks have both, and some have just an image.

Today numerous decks utilize this numbering, especially in the English-speaking world. The two situations are considered substantial.
