Translation

σφραγὶς γραφῶν τε κρίσεων Εύθυμίου.

Seal of the writings and legal decisions of Euthymios.

Commentary

Wassiliou-Seibt recorded two metrical inscriptions on this seal, the first being a circular inscription along the circumference of the obverse; but our specimen shows no such inscription (or any trace of one).

We may assume from the reference to judgments (κρίσεων) in the reverse inscription that Euthymios was a judicial official.
