Seal of Hugh XIII de Lusignan used in 1281. He is shown in hunting dress, with a small terrier-like hunting dog behind the croup of his saddle, with hunting horn hanging from his neck. This was the usual depiction in the seals of his ancestors and may indicate an early feudal tenure by grand serjeanty of hunting, as the same device was used by the Turberville family of Coity Castle in Glamorgan
