Commentary

The block monogram is ambiguous and cannot be definitively resolved; all three names are common enough names and plausible readings of the monogram. A less likely possibility is Mavros (Μαύρου). It is possible but unlikely that there are the remains of a Κ at the lower left side of the block monogram, which would render it Μάρκου (Markos).
