The use of The Balance (or Weight) is another ancient and common image used in some Shields and Arms. It has several meanings. Obviously, The Balance was used to symbolize The Law (or the imparting of such – such as a Lawyer or Judge). They impart “Fairness and Justice”. However, they can also be used to indicate “Fate”. Examples of this type of image can be found in Ancient Rome.
