Add to My Seals
The Annunciation, with the Virgin at left and the angel Gabriel at right. Border of dots.
Cruciform monogram. Border of dots.
α - ι - λ - ν - ο - ρ - τ - υ - χ - ω
Ἰωάννου χαρτουλαρίου (?)
(Seal of) John, chartoularios.
The monogram's resolution is uncertain, as the top of the seal, and of the monogram, is broken off. Assuming that there is a Τ perched atop the Ρ with a Υ sitting upon it, as seems likely, then we have this reading of "John notarios," finding an within the Ρ and Υ. If there is no Υ atop the Τ, then no sure reading comes to mind.
