Commentary

Kyriakos is attested from 696/7 to 702/704. See Zacos-Veglery, 154, table 9; add a seal from Sougdaia (Sudak), published by V. Šandrovskaja, "Die neuen Funde an byzantinischen Bleisiegeln auf der Krim," SBS 4 (1994) 153-54 and another one in Seibt-Zarnitz, no. 1.3.7.

Kamachos (also Kamacha, the modern Kemah) is located to the southwest of Erzincan on the south bank of the Euphrates. It became a metropolis after 911 with the establishment of the theme of Mesopotamia (Laurent, Corpus V/1, 571). See also Sinclair II, 415 ff.
