Hello.

I had asked about this seal more than one year ago and there had been no replies for it. Pant, please, may we learn your comments about it?

Sincerely.

Hi, iaculator

Unfortunately this seal is not good preserved, but in my opinion : 

Av:   :Greek_Theta:  :Greek_epsilon::Greek_Delta: O K  :Greek_epsilon: B O H  :Greek_Theta:  :Greek_epsilon: I  ( Mother of God help me ....)     

Re:  ............. PATPIKIO  ( the name of the owner ,  patrician ). 

Dated  VII- IX sentury.

Sincerely

Thank you very much Pant, so this is a seal that help is requested from Virgin Mary, i think..

Sincerely...
