25 April 1357 Emperor Stefan Uroš V signature from a document where he grants to the citizens of Dubrovnik lands from Ljuta to Kurilo. Serbian Royal Documents at the State Archives in Dubrovnik (1186-1479) 13570425 – car Uroš 2B. It reads: "Emperor Stefan Uros" in the first line without letter T in the name STEFAN. Second line in Latin. I can only work out last word PRIUS which means "first", "original", "superior" or "to go before". In this instance it probably meant to confirm its a original document. XXV could be Roman for 25th, followed by letter A which could stand for April. Full document can be viewed at Medieval Artifacts page.

Reason for this is the very clear and prominent beard that king is wearing. СФb letters are also split with b being placed under СФ. Double cross is also featured with a ball on each end.
