I am working on identifying an interesting Byzantine seal.  It measures 21 mm and weighs 12.11g.On the obverse is the bust of what the dealer called a "prelate saint."  
On the reverse is cruciform monogram with  :Greek_Pi:  :Greek_Tau: :Greek_Omicron: :Greek_Upsilon_2: :Greek_Nu: :Csquare: :Greek_Iota: :A3: :Greek_Chi:

Could this solve Antiochites or Antiochos ? Does anyone recognize the saint?  7th Century?  Any help would be appreciated!  Pogh_poor
All passes, Art alone Enduring stays to us; The Bust out-lasts the throne,-- The coin, Tiberius.

Not just those names, there's also Pi to account for.
