Βουλίνου (?)


Βουλίνου (?).

(Seal of) Boulinos (?).


Βουλίνου is the only seemingly possible resolution to the reverse monogram, strange as it is. The corroded letter at the right termination seems to be a backwards Ν, though it is possible that it could be something else. Additionally, perhaps the Λ at the bottom termination is a mistake for an Α, and therefore the correct reading is Λιβάνου (Libanos).
