Historical Notice: Genoese family of merchants and corsaires who became lords of Lesvos (1355-1462) and eventually extended their rule over Ainos (1376/1379-1456), Palaia Phocaea (1402/1404-1455), Thasos (1419/1428-1455), Samothraki (1431-1456), Limnos (1453-1456) and Imbros (1453-1456). This particular heraldic monument, posed above a gate of the castle of Mytilini, includes a crowned eagle, the Paleologus monogram, the Gattilusi arms and a latin inscription dated 1373. The presence of the Paleologus monogram is considered as symbolizing the relations between Gattilusio and the imperial family of Paleologus.
