Βασιλιανοῦ (?)

Translation

Βασιλιανοῦ (?).

(Seal of) Basilianos (?).

Commentary

Σαβίνου (Sabinos), Σαβινιανοῦ (Sabinianos), and Ἰουβίνου (Ioubinos) are also valid readings of the reverse, from what can be seen. A primary issue is that the letter at the terminus of the lower arm of the cruciform is cut off; it is seemingly an α, λ, or both.
