Statileo címer a segeti vártornyon, 1516

The other, more recent coat-of-arms of the Statilio (Statileo, Statilić, Stanošević) family, with the dragon wound around it, is dated to 1516. It is built into the southern facade of a 12 metre tower (Figure 9) which was constructed by this family at their possession Seget Donji near Trogir to protect it from Turkish incursions. The ground-plan of this tower is 4.8m square, with three floors and a flat roof, and is defended by three pinnacles on each side. There are consoles around the second floor, which used to carry a wooden gallery. At the height of the floor of the third floor there is a 1.15 m tall aedicula with the coat-of-arms and the enframed inscription below it: VIRTVS. STATILIOR/ ME. SIBI. VENDICAVIT./ .M.D.XVI. (FISKOVIĆ 1962: 100, Fig.14; CICARELLI 1964: 100, fig. 1; BABIĆ 1996: 135), the whole relief within an astragal border, resting on three consoles (Figure 10). The Statilio tower was therefore constructed upon the order of John Statilio or his nephews. It was in poor condition until 1958 when the Institute of Preservation of Cultural Heritage for Dalmatia had it restored (CICARELLI 1964). Unfortunately, since then, it has been closely surrounded by houses.

I. Babić found analogies for this coat-of-arms in Hungary, in Pécs, in the coat-of-arms of bishop George Szatmóry [sic!] (BABIĆ 1996: 135). Older sources quote this family as of Transylvanian origin (HEYER 1873: 80-81) which came to Trogir and that Michael Statilio and his sons Matthew and John were awarded nobility and the title of „eques auratus“ by Maximilian I. In 1515. John Statilio was also granted French nobility by François I in 1528. It is a fact that Michael Stanošević, vulgo Statileo, is mentioned in the sources and that he died after 1510. The most illustrious member of this family was the above mentioned John (*c. 1472 +1533), Transylvanian bishop (ANDREIS 2006: 266). Šime Ljubić mentioned the same John Statilio, who arrived in Venice in 1521 as the secretary of the Hungarian king Ludovic II, with the aim of asking for help in the struggle against the Turks, and that he was nominated bishop of Transylvania:

„STATILEO Giovanni di Traù, preposito Ursiense, segretario del re Lodovico d’Ungeria, dal quale fu mandato ambasciatore a Venezia per ricercare ajuto contro i Turchi nel 1521, e Andrea Morosini nel 1º libro della sua storia riporta l’orazione, che recitó in collegio. Fece ristampare la vita di S. Giovanni Ursino a sue spese. Venne da poi inalzato alla sede vescovile di Transilvania. Secondo Paolo Giovio (lib. 39) di nuovo fu mandato dal re Giovanni Sepusio di Polonia a Paolo III., Veneziani e Francesco re di Francia.“ (GLIUBICH 1856: 286). [1]
