Fictitious and Symbolic Creatures in Art, by John Vinycomb, , at sacred-texts.com
The supporters of the Ironmongers’ Company of London are two lizards. Bossewell describes beasts of similar shape—"Stelliones" as he terms them, evidently in allusion to steel. He says, "Stellio is a beaste like a lysard, having on his back spotts like starres." *
Stellione-serpent, a serpent with the head of a weasel, borne by the name of Baume.
