Translation

Λόγων Λέοντος σφραγὶς ἀκριβεστάτη.

The most genuine seal of the words of Leo.

Commentary

Dodecasyllable. Laurent read εὐσεβεστάτη originally in his unpublished catalogue of the Shaw collection and in Bulles métriques, but since corrected it in his catalogue to ἀκριβεστάτη, with which Wassiliou-Seibt concurs.
