I am working on identifying an unusual - uncommon (at least to me)  Byzantine seal with jeweled/beaded crosses on both sides.  It measures 20.11mm and weighs 7 g.

On the first side, there is a jeweled/beaded cross within a beaded circle with  A3  Greek_Omega  (possibly though it has some damage)  Greek_Eta  Greek_Nu within the arms of the cross
On the second side, there is a jeweled/beaded cross within a beaded circle with   Greek_Kappa or X   (possibly though it has some damage)  : Greek_Lambda C   Greek_epsilon within the arms of the cross.

I haven't seen a similar seal.  It looks a bit like the anonymous follis of Romanus IV.  Any help would be appreciated.  Pogh_poor

I found a seal with somewhat a similar cross on the obverse in the Dumbarton Oaks collection  (Seal of) Leontios  Pogh_poor
