Ὀνουφρίου/Ῥουφίνου

Translation

Ὀνουφρίου/Ῥουφίνου.

(Seal of) Onouphrios/Rufinus.

Commentary

Zacos reads the monogram as Ὀνουφρίου, though also possible is Ῥουφίνου. Zacos additionally mentions the alternative Φανουρίου (Phanourios), which is less likely--though still possible--because it would require the α to utilize the left bar of the Ν for its own left bar.
