Macerata1:
Hi, Would anyone know the Saint depicted on the obverse of this seal? The legend is worn and incomplete

iolkia:
Hello Macerata

I would say it is the Mother of God Hagiosoritissa. Do you read ΠΑΝΑΓΝΕ in the second (visible) line?

Regards,
Iolkia

Macerata1:
Thanks! Yes I think you’re right, I think I can make out ΠΑΝΑΙ on the second line.

Macerata1:
Would the seal date from around the 11th century?

Macerata1:
Here are some clearer photos of the seal…on the obverse …ΓΙΑ is visible to the left of the figure so it probably is the Hagiosoritissa.

Can anything be read from the legend on the reverse?
