Commentary

Bilingual seal in Greek and Latin--interesting with both languages appearing on the same side (rev.). It is not clear if this Theopemptos is both a monetarios and moderator , or if he is perhaps the monetarios of the moderator, but the former seems more likely, and a S (καὶ) may even be effaced at the beginning of the circular inscription.
