OSCAR finds the name on the Artemisia LoI of October 26, 2016 as submitted.

Purpure, a hippopotamus statant argent contourney and on a chief nebuly four violets proper.

The previous iteration of this device was withdrawn from Artemisia LoI dated 2016-10-26 on 2016-Dec-11 due to the possibility that the violets would be blazoned as trefoils. In order to preserve the cant the violets in this submission were redrawn using violets from the registered arms and badge of Serafina Rossi as a template (Jan, Nov 2013 respectively, both via Meridies).
