Commentary

The reading of the surname is uncertain. There is a tourmarches named Eudokimos Epitriklines (BZS.1951.31.5.1322), and although the spelling is different, the similar iconography, the close relationship between the offices (if they were indeed separate offices), and the fact that both inscriptions are in the nominative, without an invocation, raise the possibility that these two seals belong to the same individual.
