Where did you get this list?? Is It period? 

The two list I have are different. The Marchese Tommaso II of Saluzzo
list a bunch of Amazons.  Jacques Iverny painted  This list in 15th
Semiramis, Lampheto, Marpasia, Synoppe, Thamiris, Menalippe, Hippolyta,
Orithyia,  and Penthesilea

The other list I have is from a late 16th century Heraldry book
       Deborah, Judith, Jael (Jewish)
       Minerva, Semiramis, Thamiris (Classical)
       Matilda of England, Joanna of Naples, Isabel of Spain (Christian)
