Eudokimos Epigingles, Turmarch und Merarch

Jahrbuch der österreichischen Byzantinistik, 66:59-60.

Three eleventh-century Byzantine lead seals of an otherwise unknown Eudokimos tourmarch and merarch have
been published previously. In two of the seals the title of his office is followed by the letters Ο ΕΠΙΓΚΛ, and in the third by Ο ΕΠΙΓΙΓΓΛ, neither of which have yet been convincingly interpreted. They should in fact be read as ὁ Ἐπιγιγκλης and ὁ Ἐπιγίγγλης, a surname attested in Byzantium during the 10th century.
