And there was given unto Kronus a monthly allowance of five thousand golden crowns
by which he might run the affairs of all his house; and not this only, for the Emperor
did command that Kronus submit to the Imperial Registry the design for his personal
Coat of Arms.
Summary: Kronus Maximillius created a Coat of Arms to represent his House. The design
was that of a shield divided in half, with one side presenting the image of a serpent,
and the other side showing a dove carrying a lightning bolt (3:21:21). The meaning
of the imagery was likely inspired by the wisdom teachings of his mother, the mortal
manifestation of Areta.
Now there appeared in the arbor, Kronus Maximillius, being dressed in the finest
of purple tunics, and wearing a gold breastplate which bore the emblems of his house;
for the Coat of Arms which Kronus made did comprise a shield of war, divided in half;
and on the one half was there seen a great serpent, while on the other was there
found a dove which did but carry a lightning bolt.
