I can see that the practice of heraldry began in the late Roman Empire although there were shields that represented different families in Ancient Greece

If there was any connection between later roman shield designs and later western europian heraldry it was probably only small as real heraldy only emerged some 5th centuries after fall of the Western empire and art of Heraldry although known in "Byzantium" via western knights on crusades was never completely accepted by the Byzantine time Romans.
