Accession number BZS.1947.2.1501
Diameter 14.0 mm; field: 7.0 mm
Previous Editions

Wassiliou-Seibt, Corpus, no. 1335 (incorrectly giving the Shaw accession number BZS.1947.2.1051).

Translation

Λόγων Λέοντος σφραγὶς ἀκριβεστάτη.

The most genuine seal of the words of Leo.

Commentary

Dodecasyllable. Laurent read εὐσεβεστάτη originally in his unpublished catalogue of the Shaw collection and in Bulles métriques, but since corrected it in his catalogue to ἀκριβεστάτη, with which Wassiliou-Seibt concurs.
