Georgius & Marcus Vlasto – Arms
Crete, 1630 & 1680 A.D.

This device (and other symbols, see 'Vlasto Eagles' below) is one of many similar variants on the double-headed eagle motif used by the Vlasto family. See explanatory notes Heraldry in Byzantium; Vlasto Family References and A Brief History Of Byzantium.

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