πατριαρχικοῦ νοταρίου (?)


Κωνσταντίνου πατριαρχικοῦ νοταρίου.

(Seal of) Constantine, patriarchal notarios.


The obverse is similar to BZS.1955.1.5 and BZS.1955.1.6, except that unlike those obverses, the Σ is right side-up. The reverse is uncertain, and could also be read as πατριαρχικοῦ ἄρχοντος (patriarchal archon), πατρικἰου καὶ ἄρχοντος (patrikios and archon) or πατρικἰου καὶ σχολαστιχοῦ (patrikios and scholastikos). Reading it as πατρικἰου καὶ ὑπάρχου (patrikios and eparch) is not likely because of the Σ.
