DO Seals 2, no. 8.45.
Cf. Konstantopoulos, no. 41, who published a seal with the same name and titles and a cruciform monogram, but read the monogram as Χριστὲ βοήθει, which is not the case here. This specimen would date from the 7th/8th c. (Konstantopoulos) or 8th c. (Seibt, cf. Winkelmann, Ämterstruktur, 94).
