Hi, you can try to use Text[] primitives with characters in your plot and to use the same symbols later in the caption. You can make your graphics with dta1 = Table[{x, Sin[x]}, {x, 0, Pi, Pi/32}]; dta2 = Table[{x, Cos[x]}, {x, 0, Pi, Pi/32}]; Show[Graphics[{ Text["\[FilledCircle]", #] & /@ dta1, Text["\[FilledUpTriangle]", #] & /@ dta2}], Frame -> True] and than using the symbol reference in the caption.
