This is an ongoing project to create an exhaustive ordinary of Johann Siebmacher's Wappenbuch from 1605. I am working from the digitization of it available here. If you find any error, please let me know. As a work in progress, it will be updated as I have time.

All blazons are my own. Note that in some cases, shields with a helmet facing sinister have had their arms reversed as well (e.g., a bend is displayed as a bend sinister, the tinctures of the field reversed, etc. So if you think you've found an error, double check the helm on top!) Each blazon is identified with the name of the owner as it appears in Siebmacher, with these conventions: I have transcribed vocalic v as u, and expanded , Gē:, and to en, genannt, and Von, respectively. The number in parentheses is the plate number on which the arms occur.


Azure, a crescent moon argent pierced by anarrow fesswise Or all between in chief three mullets of six points and in base two mullets of six points argent,von Hagen (176).

Azure, a crescent, overall an arrow inverted Or, von Ogigel (74).

Azure, in saltire a stag's attire Or and an arrow inverted gules, die Tabor (50).

Azure, on a bend argent a brown arrow inverted proper, die Artzt (51).

Per bend sinister argent and sable, an arrow bendwise inverted gules, Die Weickmaner (215).
