Translation

Κομνηνὸν Ἀλέξιον ἡ σφραγὶς γράφει σεβαστοκρατοροῦντος ...

The seal inscribes Alexios Komnenos ... of the sebastokrator.

Commentary

The inscription is metrical, combining two dodecasyllabic verses; the poor state of preservation on the reverse prevents a full reading of the inscription.
