(Seal of) Theodore eparch.


This billingual seal contains a name in the Latin obverse monogram, and a title in the Greek reverse monogram. The reverse monogram is strange, formed in the shape of a large Χ with the Π hanging above and what appears to be a Ρ on the left (the bar is worn but apparent coming from the loop) in opposition to a cross on the right.
