Some explanations:
  • imperial seals: for rulers only
  • central administration: should be chosen when there is an office without toponym, if the office exists both in the central and in the provincial administration, except in case of a damaged seal if more details come from a parallel in better condition
  • seals of dignitaries: legends with dignities only
  • private patronymic seal: legends with first name and family name only
  • private seals: seals not belonging to the previous category (ex.: seals with only a first name or with an anonymous legend, such as Οὗ δῶρόν εἰμι τὰς γραφὰς βλέπων νόει)

This should be established on the basis of the information given by the seal:
  • imperial: for rulers only (not the imperial family)
  • civil: holder of an office in the civil administration
  • military: holder of an office in the military apparatus
  • lay aristocracy: alternative to the previous, when the legend does not allow a safe choice esp. between ʽcivilʼ and ʽmilitaryʼ
  • secular Church: holder of an office in the secular church
  • monastic: pertaining to the monastic milieu
  • civic: pertaining to the municipal level
  • private: without dignities or offices in the State or the Church, or in case of an anonymous legend, such as Οὗ δῶρόν εἰμι τὰς γραφὰς βλέπων νόει
