These are the arms recorded for Nicolaus Vlasto of Crete (Rethymno) in 1694. They appear almost identical to those recorded for Antonio Vlasto in 1590 as well as to those of Georgius & Marcus Vlasto in the period 1630-1680 all of whom were also of Crete (Rethymno). The illustration is from Les Vlasto Une Famille Patricienne Crétoise by Costas Kerofilas.
