What does the writing on this skull say?

It says "Theodoulos Monahos," where "Theodoulos" could either be the person's name or literally "Servant of God," so it could either mean "Theodoulos the Monk" or "Servant of God, the Monk."

EDIT: On second thought, it's probably his name. If the inscriber wanted to say "Servant of God," he probably would have written «Δοῦλου τοῦ Θεοῦ» instead.
