From The Blazon of Gentrie by Sir John Ferne (1586) p198

Blazon: Or three tridents palewise 2 and 1 gules

“If you know not how to blaze [this coat], it is shame for you, since that the devise thereof, is taken from one of the Gods of the heathen, and you have read thereof in every Poet.” – Paradius, the herald in Ferne’s text (197)
