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.

ROUNDEL - Whole - All other tinctures

Argent, a roundel sable, von Reitnaw (116).

Azure, an eagle rising reguardant wings displayed sable atop a millstone argent, die Poster (72).

Azure, on a bend cotised argent a roundel azure charged with a fleur-de-lys argent, die Pimmel (214).

Quarterly 1st and 4th Or, an orb azure, 2nd and 3rd Or, a lion sable, von Beroldingen (202).

Quarterly 1st and 4th Or semy of roundels sable, 2nd and 3rd Or, a swan sable, von Closen (78).

Sable, five plates in saltire argent, a bordure gules, von Sickingen (122).
