I acquired an interesting Imperial seal.  It measures approximately 31.72 mm and weighs 23 g.

On the obverse is facing bust of Christ Pantocrator

On the reverse is : Bust of a bearded emperor. He is holding a long cross? scepter in the right hand and a globus cruciger in the left.  There is ΤΟC visible to the right of the bust.

After looking at several examples in the DOC and other place, I believe that this is a seal of Emperor Constantine IX Monomachus. Below my seal, I have shown an better preserved example.  What is your opinion?

All passes, Art alone Enduring stays to us; The Bust out-lasts the throne,-- The coin, Tiberius.
