Corpus of Byzantine Seals from Bulgaria, Volume I: Byzantine Seals with Geographical Names includes 1 boulloterion, 422 lead seals belonging to 82 titularies from the Byzantine provincial administration. After providing the data of the seal, commentary is included on the person of its owner, other known evidence about it extracted from narrative sources or from other seals, as well as information on his relatives.

The seals reflect some dynamic processes and they are the only sources for information about lots of settlements and especially these situated in the Bulgarian lands.
