ΒΔΗΘΟΡΣΤΧΩ

Χριστὲ βοήθει τῷ σῷ δούλῳ

Translation

Χριστὲ βοήθει τῷ σῷ δούλῳ.

Christ, help thy servant.

Commentary

The reading is a little forced, since we must take the intersection of the two bars as T and the lower loop of the B as P. No other resolution comes to mind. The inscription remains anonymous since the Ε necessary for Theodore or Theodosios (as read by previous editors) does not appear.
