Commentary

The reverse monogram is strange; instead of being a cruciform, it has two trees on the sides, and an apparently purely decorational cross attached above. The vowels (if present) must be found within the Θ, as must be the Δ. However, Theodoulos is apparently the most likely--and only--reading.
