I found this cigarette case, without any mark, which has a large coat of arms engraved and filled with niello.
The first question is that I can not explain the motto
" AUDAS NON FEROX"
In Latin it could make sense "audax non ferox" or at most "audeas non ferox"
Is it possible that the engraver made such a gross mistake? Or is there another explanation that I have not considered?
The second question is obviously: someone knows who this coat of arms belongs to ?
The transversal lines that can be glimpsed are slightly corroded.
Thanks for the attention
