Commentary

The invocation can also read ΚΕ, and thus Κύριε instead of Θεοτόκε. 

Laurent points out that the reverse of BZS.1947.2.403 is of an identical distribution with that of another seal of a Euthymios, priest and kouboukleisios, and thus it likely represents the same person (Corpus V/2, no. 1085).
