Commentary

The α-δ-ω ligature at the bottom of the reverse monogram is skewed off center, but its reading is clear (it is not a sideways β). The reverse complex monogram is likely to be read as has been done here, but because of the multitude of letter, it could also read something else, such as the name Danielios (Δανιλίῳ) with the same office, or the entirely different John servant of Christ (Ἰωάννῃ δούλῳ Χριστοῦ).
