Προκοπίου

Translation

Προκοπίου.

(Seal of) Prokopios.

Commentary

Zacos reads Πέτρου (Peter), while Πύρρου (Pyrros) can also be read. However the former is likely incorrect because there is no Ε, and the latter is incorrect because what Zacos took as a Ε is actually a Κ, rendering Προκοπίου to be the most likely resolution to the monogram.
