Translation

Kύριε βοήθι τὸν σὸν δοῦλον Δαμιανὸν κουβουκλήσιον καὶ ἐπισκεπτίτην τῶν βασιλικῶν κτιμάτων Ῥοδανδοῦ τὸν Ἀβράμιον.

Lord, help your servant Damianos Abramios, kouboukleisios and episkeptites of the imperial estates of Rodandos.

Commentary

The place name could as well be restored as Ροδανδοῦ, which also possessed an imperial episkepsis (see Sig., 315; Oikonomides, "Organization," 288). See also Cheynet, "Episkeptitai," 269.
