Happy New Year!

Both George Marcou in "Heraldry of Cyprus" and Gwynneth der Parthog "Byzantine and Medieval Cyprus" comment on the two coats of arms over the north door of Panayia Khryseleousa church in Lyssos church, near Polis, and state that these are Neville.
They are 1: a fess 6 fleur de lys: 3,2 & 1
and 2: a fess 6 cross pattee: 3,2 & 1.
I wonder whether they are Braose and not Neville. I would love to hear from anyone with an interest in the Latin period for this area.

Many thanks,

Gillian Palmer
