Accession number BZS.1955.1.4882
Diameter 22 mm
Condition Half missing.


Spiraling invocative monogram. Border of dots.

Θεοτόκε βοήθει


Inscription in four lines with decorations above and below. Border of dots.


Ἀνδρέᾳ μοναχῷ κουβουκλεισίῳ καὶ βασιλικῷ? νοταρίῳ


Θεοτόκε βοήθει Ἀνδρέᾳ μοναχῷ κουβουκλεισίῳ καὶ βασιλικῷ (?) νοταρίῳ.

Theotokos, help Andrew, monk, kouboukleisios and imperial (?) notarios.


Because of the missing half seal, it is unclear what (if any) word precedes the office of notarios; in this period it is most likely "imperial," though protonotarios is also possible.
