Actually, Modar ... wait, this is Ansteorran Heralds'!  Geez, Modar,
you *are* a heraldry junkie! ... anyway, I also see

Dragonsspine, Barony of|9105O|d|Or, four gyrons in chief azure, their

and in base a laurel wreath vert.||DRAGON:1:purpure:t1|GYRON|LW:1:not

Ilissa the Nightwatcher|8809S|d|Per fess sable and gules, two gyrons

argent.||CRESCENT:1:argent:increscent|GYRON|PFESS:pl:sable:~and gules

(Modar, my guess is that you did what I did first, search for
" gyron ".  When I noticed the category was "GYRON", I searched for
"|GYRON\>" ("\>" is a word boundary in GNU Emacs).)

Mind you, I couldn't emblazon most of these.  I don't see how you can
fit four full width and equal-length gyrons in chief and make them
conjoin, for just one example.

The reason why gyrons are on the list is that I started to ask Da'ud
about his proposed wording for the new X.4.a.ii: "Why a canton and not
a quarter?", et cetera.  We dragged out a source, probably _An
Heraldic Alphabet_, and just went thru some list of peripheral
