Translation

Βικάριου δούλου τῆς Θεοτόκου.

(Seal of) Vikarios, servant of the Theotokos.

Commentary

The obverse is uncertain. Zacos does not solve a similar seal (no. 584). It could be interpreted as Βάκκου or perhaps Ἰακώβου (with an ο as a stand-in for the ω). However, Βικάριου seems most likely.
