. . . ὑπάρχου.

(Seal of) Ν. eparch.


Based upon the partial monogram, Ἀρχίππου an educated guess, though only if it served in a compound as a τ is also present. Additionally likely from the remains is the title ὑπάρχου--with an ε attached to the no longer extant bar, it could read as Πέτρου ὑπάρχου, though again, this is only speculation.
