Σφραγὶς Μανουήλ τοῦ Καστριότου.

This is the seal of Manuel Kastriotes.

Commentary

In her commentary to this seal, Wassiliou-Seibt (in our view, correctly) points to the error by which the expected Ρ was rendered as Γ in the final line of the reverse. We have followed her reading in restoring the owner's name as Kastriotes.

Note that the inscription consists of two five-syllable hemistichs.
