Commentary

The relationship between the two names on the obverse and reverse is generally indeterminable; the only possible assistance is that the word υἱοῦ/υἱῷ is only contained on the Ἰωάννου side of the seal (perhaps the seal reads Ἰωάννου υἱου Θωμᾶ). BZS.1951.3.5.2876 comes from a different boulleterion, but its monograms have the same disposition.
