Commentary

This seal is seemingly a parallel to that published by Laurent, based on the likely identification of St. Nicholas on the obv. and the similar distribution of letters on the reverse--however the lack of a picture of the Laurent specimen or of a assured identification of similar obverses makes this identification somewhat uncertain.
