Commentary

The solution to the monogram found on the obverse may be simpler than the complex two-name Ἐλπιδίου Πολυεύκτου guessed here; there is nothing to specifically indicate its complexity, yet with that being said, the proposed resolution seems most likely. Additionally, note the strange spelling of χαρτωλαρίου; it is also possible that it is a dative (χαρτουλαρίῳ).
