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.

BEAST - Lion - 1 - Gules - Passant

Or, a bend lozengy bendwise argent and sable, in chief a lion passant bendwise gules, von Sponheim genannt Bacharach (127).

Or, a lion statant gules crowned atop a trimount azure, Calw (225).

Per fess Or and argent, in chief a lion passant gules, von Varendorf (188).

Per fess Or and argent papellony sable, in chief a lion passant gules, von Schwemke (188).

Per fess Or and azure, a lion passant gules and two mullets of six points Or, die Mügen von Boffsheim (196).
