Translation

Γραφὰς σφραγίζω Ἀλυπίου προέδρου.

I seal the letters of the proedros Alypios.

Commentary

Dodecasyllable. This seal may either be the seal of a bishop, or of an individual with the title of proedros. The fact that it is a metrical seal lends credence to the hypothesis that this is an ecclesiastical seal.
