Commentary

Though the reverse monogram is worn, its disposition becomes clear through the similar seal BZS.1955.1.16. Eustathios hypatos seems a likely reading of the reverse monogram, however it is an uncertain complex monogram that seems to contain two words, likely a name and a title. If there are two names as restored here, the relationship between the two names is unclear; with a singular title, likely one would be a patronymic.
