Tak Dlugosz: Klejnoty. p.86 (cont.) and seal of Jacek Dzieduszycki. Also 1464 gives four other seals (Piekosinski: Heraldyka, p. 142 pic. 221 i 222, Haisig: Sfragistyka szlachecka, p. 48-50 pic. 120, 122, 123, 124), which having an arrow with the fork towards bottom may represent one of the phases of the coat development. Wyrostek (see. lit., p. 117) accepts a coat Sudkowicz as one of such a forms.

(...) The beginninigs of this Coat of Arms gives Okolski from Saxon, from the name comes; from Saxon the Coat of Arms went first to Hungary, from where count Huyd, the bearer of the Coat, with significant number of men at arms arrived to Halich and joining forces of Leo, prince of Ruthenia, together with Lithuanian auxyliaries moved agains Mazovia. Rewarded for his battlefield deeds by the prince, except significant gifts, his cousin for wife, thence he settled in Ruthenia and gave beginnings to families bearing this Coat of Arms. Paprocki mentions that formerly in Hungary gold coins with this Coat of Arms were made, thence the House of Huyd must have been prominent in Hungary and had own Mint.
