In the Byzantine Empire there were Jewish communities that lived and coexisted with Christian communities, which also marked their bread with a cross. These stamps usually bear the name of the baker written in Byzantine Greek. These seals were made in serial form, without inscription, and when the baker acquired it he added his personal mark. It is really one of the objects of daily use that gives us more about the daily life customs of the Byzantines.
