Commentary

Another possible reading of the reverse monogram is Ἰωάννου (John), if the Τ element in the middle is in actuality just a decorative cross. However, it seems to be intentionally placed within the monogram, and as its inclusion gives the  reading of Ἀντωνίου, it should be accepted as a Τ.
