Κύριε βοήθει Εὐθυμίῳ πρεσβυτέρῳ καὶ κουβουκλεισίῳ.

Commentary

Laurent mentions that it is clear that the obverse bishop is Niketas, not Nicholas, from his appearance. He points out that the reverse is of an identical distribution as that of BZS.1958.106.239 (Corpus V/1, no. 195), and thus likely represent the same individual.
