Translation

γραφῶν ἐπισφράγισμα, πρακτέων κῦρος τυποῖ Μιχαὴλ τοῦ δρόμου λογοθέτης.

Michael, logothetes tou dromou, strikes the seal of his correspondence as the confirmation of his acts.

Commentary

The dating of the seal to the second half of the twelfth century makes it possible that the owner was Michael Hagiotheodorites, attested as logothete of the Drome between 1166 and 1170.
