Lord, help your servant Anastasios, the judge of the Peloponnesos and Hellas.

Commentary

The Zacos seal may reasonably be assigned to the same person as ours. It provides the reading ΤΩΚΡΙΤΗ clearly visible. The use of the definite article in this position is striking; it conveys the impression that the owner wanted to distinguish himself from another Anastasios, who was not a judge.
