Having seen the expanded version, I would definitely go with an abbreviation of servatrix. It begins with a long s and looks  like abbreviations of other words I have seen starting with s. In the next line, the male version, servator, appears (abbreviated to servr). The way servatrix has been written is perhaps due to it following another abbreviation - November (nor).
