Saint George with the Pelican and Saint William's Shield

A cup is a common heraldic charge. According to Parker's "A Glossary of Terms Used in Heraldry" - s.n. Cup: "Cup (old fr Coupe): the cup was rather a favourite device from the fourteenth century onwards, as shewn by several references to it in the Rolls of Edward II and Edward III."

General Naming Conventions: The Academy of St. Gabriel identifies that women used a two-element name (the feminized version of the father's name + a cognomen (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/2206, retrieved on 5/26/17).

Oppia: Oppia is the feminized version of a man's name, "Oppius," meaning "the daughter of Oppius." The name "Oppius" can be found on a list of Roman names (webbed at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Roman_nomina#O). This site was retrieved on 2/16/17 and then again on 5/26/17.

Examples of naming a daughter of a male are found here : http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/other/sg-roman.html and http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/names/roman.html#women (both retrieved on 5/26/17). These two websites are referenced at https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/otherearly.shtml#roman (retrieved on 2/16/17 and then on 5/26/17).

Vopisca: Using the same naming examples for "Oppius" to "Oppia," one can surmise that "Vopisca" would be the feminine cognomen of the masculine cognomen "Vopiscus." "Vopiscus" can be found here (http://www.forumromanum.org/life/johnston_2.html, retrieved on 5/26/17), as a praenomen that went out of use in very early times, but later used as a cognomen (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vopiscus, retrieved on 5/26/17). Vopiscus was identified on a list of Roman consuls (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vopiscus and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Roman_consuls, both retrieved on 5/26/17).

"The daughter of <Marcus Livius Drusus> was recorded as <Livia Drusilla,> although <Livia Drusa> would have been equally appropriate. Many variations arose during the imperial period, and by the latter centures of the empire, a woman might have been known by her father's nomen and cognomen (<Aemilia Lepida,> daughter of <Lucius Aemilius Lepidus>)…" (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/2206, retrieved on 2/16/17 and then on 5/26/17).

Additional Documentation provided by Ursula Georges (Palimpsest):

The nomen is found in my article here: http://heraldry.sca.org/names/roman.html#nomen

Vopiscus was indeed used as a cognomen. Here's an example from a no-photocopy source: http://edh-www.adw.uni-heidelberg.de/edh/inschrift/HD000745
