Commentary

The reverse seal is unresolvable; there is likely a mistake. It cannot be Σεβαστιανῷ because there is no ν and it cannot be Βασιλείῳ because there is a τ. Additionally, on the left arm of the cruciform, there is an irregular vertical bar, either meant to explicitly indicate an iota, or to form part of an unfinished letter.
