In heraldry a inescutcheon is a subordinary in the shape of a shield. It is sometimes referred to as an escutcheon, though this term often refers to the larger shield itself.

An augmentation of arms is sometimes displayed in escutcheon on a shield.

Multiple escutcheons can be used as a regular charge and are seen in early heraldry.
