Γεωργίου κανδιδάτου

Γεωργίου κανδιδάτου.

(Seal of) George kandidatos.

Commentary

The resolution of the monogram is likely but not certain; for it to be the case, a Γ must be found within the Τ or the Ε, which is not unlikely, and the Ν must not have a Η in ligature with it. If there is a Η encompassed within the Ν, as is possible but unclear on the seal, then the reading could be Ἡρακλείου κανδιδάτου (Herakleios kandidatos).
