Locus sigilli means place of the seals. Place of the seal is locus

There is no doubt whatsoever as to the meaning of "L.S." at the foot of
legal documents -- it always means, literally, place of the seal; was often
written or printed to indicate that the document was in fact sealed; and
early on came to be treated as the equivalent of a seal (legally, not
necessarily aesthetically).

 "L.S." to indicate the place for or to constitute a seal continues in use
today, and is found printed on many pre-printed legal documents.
