Commentary

This is the same seal as BZS.1951.31.5.2891, but from a different boulleterion. The reverse cruciform monogram on this seal is difficult to resolve. Zacos has no answer. The letter to the left of the Κ at the right termination of the crucifix is seemingly an Η, however accepting it as such makes the resolution impossible; if it is taken as an unnecessary letter, perhaps as a misspelling caused by iotacization, then the resolution βασιλικοῦ νοταρίου is clear.
