Translation

σφραγὶς Γαβριὴλ εἰμὶ τοῦ Πεφλεγμένου.

I am the seal of Gabriel Pephlegmenou.

Commentary

This seal was struck twice. Remnants of an inscription of at least three lines can be seen in the lower right hand quarter of the obverse: να|τιρ|ηλ . We can offer no reading of what appears to have been the reverse inscription of the original seal. On the obverse, traces of a saint's halo and the abbreviation  (ὁ ἅγιος) are visible, but no identification can be made.
