- Curator's comments
TSC notes that the top fleur-de-lys with a label is supposedly that of the House of Anjou.
Name of the person refers back to Spoleto in Italy. If the interpretation of the helraldry is correct there might be an Angevin connection with Naples. The quartrefoil shape of the seal matrix suggests some Spanish connection. (JC)
