Translation

Κύριε βοήθει Πέτρῳ σπαθαροκανδιδάτῳ καὶ ἄρχοντι Δρουγουβητίας τῷ Μόσχῳ.

Lord, help Peter Moschos spatharokandidatos and archon of Drougoubitia.

Commentary

The title archon suggests that the Drougoubitai had a separate administration inside the theme and that the holder of the office was most probably a Greek.
