turanoid:
Hi friends, I have difficulties with this seal, I guess it's a byzantine seal,but could anybody tell me what is written on the obverse and reverse?
Thank you in advance.

Gert:
Hi,
Your seal reads DOVLOV TOV THEOTOKOV - NAPCOV VPATOV (OV are all ligate). So '[seal of] the servant of the Theotokos Narses, hypatos. Hypatos translates latin 'Consul', which means this person was of consular rank.
Regards
Gert
