Commentary

Though the letter at the termination of the right arm of the reverse cruciform is illegible, it is likely a Κ, as this monogram seems to be of the same disposition as the unsolved BZS.1955.1.282. Like that seal, the reverse of this seal seemingly contains an unknown name, perhaps of Armenian or Khazar origin on account of the likely "τζ" sound present. At this time, no known name of this period can be reconstructed from the letters in this monogram.
