(Seal of) Theodore . . .

Commentary

The reverse monogram seems to resolve to something like Θεοδωρίνου or Θεοδώρου νέου,  in the sense of "the younger", with respect to some family member named Theodore who is older. However this would be strange, as there is no other information about his family given, through the context of which νέου may be understood. It is also possible, from the reading of Zacos, that νέου refers to this Theodore being a novice.
