Translation

σφραγὶς Θεοδοσίου Ἀλεξοπούλου τοῦ Ἀμπελᾶ.

Seal of Theodosios Alexopoulos Ampelas.

Commentary

It is not clear whether Alexopoulos is a patronymic or family name in accompaniment with Ampelas, or if Ampelas ("vintner") is the owner's nickname. Note the existence of a seal (BZS.1947.2.995) that belonged to Niketas and Alexios Ampelas.
