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.

LOZENGE - 4 or more

Argent, a fess gules between seven lozenges four and three azure, von Stainhaim (118).

Azure, a fess Or between six lozenges three and three argent, von Schwendi (115).

Azure, nine lozenges one, two, three, two, and one gules, von Drebber (189).

Gules, eight lozenges conjoined two, four, and two argent, die Blanckensteiner (53).

Or, seven lozenges four and three, each row conjoined, sable, von Rutl... (182).

Per fess gules and argent, in base seven lozenges four and three azure, die Torcken (191).

Quarterly 1st and 4th sable, an eagle Or, 2nd and 3rd gules, eight banners four and four in saltire Or hafted sable, overall an escutcheon azure charged with a fess Or between six lozenges argent, von Schwendi (25).
