I can only think of "leído" but does it make sense?

I would put this to the legal forum:)

I notice there are two signatures, one on the left and one on the right

so maybe this is just the initials of the person signing? I wouldn't spend much more time on this.

I agree with you! No use banging our heads against a brick wall:)

Note to reference poster
Asker: Thanks for looking, Liz. I like "leído" but not sure it makes sense here. I think I will just leave a comment to say I haven't figured it out.

agree  Paula Ramos: It seems to be the initials of someone checking the legal content, maybe a notary.
