Commentary

The reverse is cut-off and worn, rendering its reading inexact. However, Ἀνδρονίκου seems most likely, though δισκούρσορος is also possible (if the cut off Ν is really a Σ). Νικάνδρου is an alternate resolution of Ἀνδρονίκου. Assuming this seal does contain a double-name, the relation between the two names is uncertain.
