Commentary

The obverse has been partially obliterated and as a result, its monogram is indecipherable. The lower and right arms of it seem to indicate a Δ-Ω ligature and a Ε respectively, however the other two arms cannot be read. Perhaps the remnants of an ligature is present at the top. The most likely apparent resolution is Θεοδώρου, however this remains uncertain, especially with the presence of the first name Nikephoros on the reverse.
